Tigerprint Christmas typography competition

Its been many months since I felt an itch to enter a Tigerprint competition. I couldn't pass this one up. It was for Christmas inspired typography to be placed over photographic imagery that they kindly provided. I was immediately drawn to the sliced apples and mulling spices. I love mulled wine and always make large batches for friends during the festivities. It evokes a nostalgia for Dickens inspired Christmas', so I used that as my starting point.

Using vintage type from my Pinterest board I was able to compile a layout that worked around the apples. I also didn't realise the deadline was a day earlier than I had noted down. I was in a mild state of panic as I hurried to upload and did not have as much time as I would have liked for a second typographic layout. Neverless I am pleased to have applied my hand lettering in this manner.
