A Walk in 1875 St. Louis Logo!

I'm excited to be a part of the big exhibit now showing at the Missouri Historical Museum, A Walk in 1875 St. Louis, and am gonna start posting sketches, visual research and behind-the-scenes in-progress images from some of the stuff I worked on. First: the logo.
Here's a small sampling of early doodlings done while developing '1875' logo/mark, inspired by the typography of the title page from Compton & Dry's "Pictorial St. Louis", the amazing (book of) maps that inspired the exhibit:
Some more developed thumbnails:
Some tighter sketches and alternate ideas:
Inked lineart:
In-progress vector refinement:
Final black + white logo:
An application in the field (mug available in the gift shop):

Alpha Testo Boost Are they offering software or charging rates that seem to good to be true. It's not wrong to shop around for a good price but there are factors other than price to consider. Would you employ a builder to build you a house just because he was the cheapest.
