Letterform P

This letter P is about 2″ tall and was created with spray paint and a metal stencil set. I was given the set by a great friend and I’ve used them in several t-shirt designs.

Did you know that most English words beginning with P are of foreign origin, primarily French, Latin, Greek, and Slavic?

Have you heard of a pica? A pica is a unit of measurement used in typography which is equal to one-sixth of an inch. There are 12 points to a pica.

12 points = 1 pica; 6 picas = 1 inch; 72 points = 1 inch.
