Miguel Reyes lettered a number of headlines and dropcaps for Bon Appétit’s October 2014 "Party Issue" special package. Working from the opening titles of a Royal Ascot horse race from the 1970s, several Tuscan alphabets drawn for Photolettering Inc., and both British and American Tuscan display faces from the 19th century, Miguel came up with a lettering style that could tie together the disparate articles in the package under the guiding theme of "Party Like Your Parents". The October 2014 issue also marks a minor redesign of the front section and the introduction of Caponi Text as the text face for longer articles.
