from the canon
copy of a cover of the magazine 'Merz 1. Holland Dada,' from 1923
i also played around with auto trace in adobe illustrator while working on this project. above is the cover traced at a lower resolution. even with the digital quirks, it is perhaps closer to the original—but what do i learn from mechanical copying? when i hand copy, i am in a sense walking in someone else's shoes, more closely seeing the decisions they made, and taking time to understand a layout.
