Punchcutters (when types had to be cut, and not just drawn), were working with steel, a strong metal they had to sculpt. They were subject to physical contingencies: each type cast was engraved separately and, as we move down into the smaller type sizes, the drawing was adapted to new specific data encountered — fine hairlines—hence fragile—need to be reinforced, the curves simplified and the width spacing slightly increased to prevent the ink from clogging up the composition. So, each body size had its own drawing, mostly given by merely physical limits relating to the dexterity and eyesight of the punchcutter… and of the reader, too.

Picklepie was created by Lydia, aged around 6 at the time, for use in her own artwork and things like party invitations, birthday cards and secret files. It looked so lively, happy and original that, with encouragement from me, her dad, she went on to draw all the letter and number forms, including alternate versions of some, entirely unaided. I then elaborated the other characters, doing my best to preserve the delightful logic and spontaneity of her work.
