Spencer Heyfron and Angela Southern: This Is New York

I am still a faithful print magazine reader, and New York Magazine has been one of my favorites ever since I moved to NYC almost 10 years ago. One feature I’ve always loved in every issue is the Look Book, which includes a portrait shot by Spencer Heyfron alongside a brief interview with the subject. So I was incredibly excited to stumble upon this promotional mailer called This Is New York, where Spencer’s photographs are paired with a snippet from their interview hand lettered by Angela Southern. I grabbed a few of my favorites below, but there is quite a bit more to see on the project page, so be sure to check that out.

    I'm dying to know what font the script font is used here? It is perfection.

    Hi Wendy, Since this was a lettering project, all of that script you see is hand-lettering. I wish it were a typeface!
