    In pre-Covid times, I hosted a monthly event, Necromancers of the Public Domain, wherein an aged book was reborn as a low-budget, 1-night-only New York City variety show.

    I designed all the promos myself on the free design website, Canva, and immediately decided the font Sunday would be the look of Necromancers of the Public Domain.

    It didn’t even occur to me til now that in addition to Sunday, most of our promos feature the hundred or nearly-hundred year old fonts of the covers of whatever book we were necromancing on any given month.

    More Necromancers of the Public Domain images are on Theater of the Apes’ website.
