about

An amazingly detailed account of one woman’s experience during the Civil War, Lucy Pier Stevens, wrote down her every thought and movement in a beautiful and dense script. I used Laura Worthington’s Adorn collection of fonts to set the cover text because the style is reminiscent of Civil War era typography.
