This publication was originally created in 2015 as a Type project. The Main theme is that Type is Art and Art is Type. Melding the two as one was a natural progression. This is the first issue. New issues to come. Design by Jade DaRu. Co-written by Jade DaRu and Scott C. Sickles

JERRY LESS, Playwright & Director
Originally this project was to design the playbill for a staged reading of William Shakespeare's Henry VI Trilogy, entitled Game of Roses. The logo had already been created for the title, however, a logo needed to be designed for Mr. Less's theater production company, NY Heartbeat Theater.
