Custom Chess Set
Custom Chess Set
Created custom chess pieces, a custom chess board, and correspondence postcards for long distance chess games. When I was a kid my father played chess by mail so for his retirement I made him a custom board and postcards so he could continue in this tradition.

Pieces were designed using Composite Condensed, a typeface designed by William C. Page in 1870 that I came across in Rob Roy Kelly’s, American Wood Type 1828-1900. A complete specimen was provided to me by the Rob Roy Kelly Collection, currently at the University of Texas, Austin.

Each piece was laser cut and engraved out of wood by Kerri at Good Wood. Be sure to check out their beautifully crafted wooden jewelry and custom work.
