Background

Painted letters from 1882, found while browsing Patricia’s uploaded ephemera on Flickr.

The designer, Lev Berry digitised Monstre to use across titles, logos, layouts and animations. Designers can manipulate five layers of lighting and shading to achieve the right look. Monstre retains original slight imperfections so as not to completely erase the feeling of the human touch when it was first coloured and shaded in 1882.
