Fonts used (graphics):

Didot

Dwiggins initials.Originally designed in 1930 by W.A. Dwiggins for the cover for Paul Hollister’s book American Alphabets. Lettergraphics had a film type version named Fast Lady D.

Reporter a.k.a. Pinselschrift (brush script). The metal original – larger sizes were also available in wood – came with many extras: alternates, swash underlines, ligatures, as well as logotypes for common German trigraphs like ‘sch’ and even whole syllables (‘ent’, ‘ung’, ‘heit’, ‘keit’).

The digitally available Reporter No. 2 is a simplified version with far fewer gaps inside the main strokes. It lacks all of the mentioned embellishments.

On Allen Ginsberg’s lines:

that’s what I wanted,

I always wanted,

I always wanted,

to return to the body

where I was born.
