Erosion and Typography 3

This typographic print is third in a series of three, each of which explores the effects of erosion and weathering on the printed word.

The text itself is taken from a 1971 essay on experimental typography by the German designer and typographer Wolfgang Weingart, and is set in the Univers typeface. Univers was designed from 1954-57 by Adrian Frutiger.

Stunning. #wishlisted

  1. I am loving this…really wonderful print

  2. That’s lovely. I’m a real sucker for this kind of thing.
    It reminds me of Sam Winston’s work on “A Dictionary Story”, which is also wonderful and worth checking out.
