bird wing

bird wing, originally uploaded by maybeemily.

In the Continuing Letterpress class that I am taking at Pratt (taught by the wonderfully amazing Miss Lisa Hasegawa), we learned about proper justification of type with this exercise - create a shape out of type.
I had high hopes and big dreams for this - my original setup took me several classes to set - 8pt Spartan type with a multitude of facts telling you all about birds.
But, we are nearing the end of class. Next week is our last class, and I was falling behind. So I scrapped it and made this guy out of 20 different faces/sizes, and I am way happier with it than I was with the original.
I decided to go with the shape on the left. What do you think?
