Types of Common Rogue

Hester Prynne may have worn the Scarlet Letter upon her bosom, but these days we don’t have conspicuous conventions to label our shameful ways. Some old college mates of mine in London, Society of Revisionist Typographers, ie, SORT Design have printed up with these lovely letterpress patches. Each patch printed on canvas revisits old Victorian slang words for the five types of common rouge. Smatter hauler, tooler, drag sneak, bawdy basket, cracksman, I just love antiquated insults, much better the the ol’ standby bitch t-shirt. Now if I can just decide what needs this adornment…

Don’t you dare call me a smatter hauler!
(hanky thief)


I’m much more of a bawdy basket.
