On the first day of class, I have my students fill out index cards with pertinent course info, and on the reverse side they make typographic portraits using letraset——so that I can recall their names. I made these three, while they eased back in and acclimated themselves with type. Here are some great student examples from last year.

u s e f u l and l o v e l y!
from Faulty Diction:
whack, what, which, etc
Pronounced hwac, hwat, hwich, etc.: not wac, wat, wich, etc.
The English are especially lax in the pronunciation of such words as these, almost uniformly dropping the initial h sound, while many Americans err by making the aspirate too sharply prominent.
Published by Funk & Wagnalls Company. 1909 – 1915.
I spotted and stalked this perfect club house in a fancy minneapolis neighborhood this fall. I could live here!
This is the first house I ever lived in——it was tiny! And get a load of these homemade stickers—YIKES—I made hundreds when I was six! Now that I've shared some of my graphic prowess, it's time to get rid of them.
