printing last weekend wasn’t a complete disaster: i decided to print some of my circles on pages from old art history and drawing books. the page above is from “art in our time” published by the museum of modern art in 1939. it’s my favorite: i love the retro layout and typography. and the print by arp, titled the navel bottle, well, looks like a fish to me, so i’m in love. my circles add a bit more to the retro feel, and i’ll honestly say that i’m tempted to frame this.
speaking of typography, a new show opens at mcba this saturday, titled face the nation: how national identity shaped modern typeface design, 1900-1960. the show runs until september 21. the graphic designer in me is really looking forward to seeing this show.
