Foiled Type

Foiled Type

Foiling type consists of three stages when created by hand, first embossing the type into the chosen material, then pressing foil into the embossed ares with the same tool (either cut out before hand of as a sheet), then cleaning up the edges. This is a long process but can create a sense of depth and dimension. This could be used for my book cover.
