This fantastic crest I discovered in an old volume in the periodicals section of a university library (The Paper Nut title in the center is my current addition, via Photoshop). In addition the high-res scan I made, this graphic was vividly etched my "visual inspiration file". It really laid the foundation for the idea of The Paper Nut, the squirrel-and-nut perched iconically. Sometime I'd like to implement this as a secondary logo, perhaps for a line of more ornate-style products.
