  1. Ambergate is an unusual blend of firm lines and wispy embellishments. I’m delighted to see the Vulcan Foundry featured in your first example. It features also in the early chapters of my novel The Mind’s Own Place, set in Newton-le-Willows in the 1830s (when it was known as Newton-in-Makerfield) – a period of great innovation in railway locomotive development. There’s an excellent website on N-le-W, hosted by Stephen Dowd, which is full of historical and other local material.

    • Ian, The contrast between delicate curving lines and solid geometric based letter forms is something I think works well, and hope to explore further in future designs. As someone with more than a passing interest in British Raiway history, I Shall explore Stephen Dowd’s website with interest. Paul.
