Lago Maggiore

Another cover version of the cover of a folder for a local take-away restaurant. Again I used the same dimensions, and all of the text.

Kerklaan Express

Kerklaan Express, typography by Enkeling

I got a folder of a take away restaurant in my mailbox and decided to recreate the front of it, with all the text and the same size, but using hand drawn lettering. So there went my day, pretty time consuming.

Update: This restaurant no longer exists.
