Description: This nostalgic text, written by my sister Alison Horsley, refers to the numbers which have “shaped” her childhood. To reinforce this concept the page edges have been shaped into these numbers, and they are also printed under the text. The Tempus Sans type font was selected to mimic the wobbly shapes of a young child’s writing.
