Magnolia Brewery hasn’t existed for close to one hundred years. The building in the postcard is the corporate offices (upstairs) and the brewery was downstairs and in the basement. My client, Bart Truxillo, owns that building and once it made it to the National Record of Historic Buildings, he through a party.
Making something, even an illustration, look old an appropriate too some time and research. Especially the type design. Each letter is hand-drawn. The effect is just what Bart wanted.
