Dings designed by Nymphont from Nymphont's own (Lauren Thompson's) artwork and drawings. Inspiration for a few "vintage" looking dings, such as the fist with iron knuckles and the good luck ring, coming from a Johnson Smith & Co advertisement in the January 1933 issue of, "Everyday Science and Mechanics." The ad is a true gem, with many more unusual woodcut drawings of the period. I was so taken by them I was certain others might be as well; hence, I recreated them here in this dingbat font. Depicted in the character mapped as the latin lowercase letter 'x' (proper punctiation dictates that a single letter be underlined, not placed in single quotes as I have done. I ask that you forgive me for this error as I am unable to underline text in this description. Also, please forgive this lengthy note, I don't think breaks a grammatical rule but it is possibly in bad form) are Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair as they appear on a poster for the movie they starred in which was entitled, "Swing Time." The film, also a gewm, I am glad to have caught one afternoon on American Movie Classics, a cable network. Oh, and the bunny is similar to the logo of a popular gentlemen's magazine, thought some people might want to use it to make graphics for their sites and what not.
