Gotta love the art store that a few blocks from our place. I wandered in today to see if they had an 'Ames lettering guide', and the clerk goes, "I think so let me check...Yep here you go"
This may not sound very strange but after struggling for years to find a whole range of comic art supplies, this really gets me giggling.
Not sure if I'll even use the ames guide I've just alway read about them and got it to add to my collection of comic art tools. Also these kind of things are becoming more obsolete as time goes on.
