Text/Gallery is a new experimental showcase for art and design projects inspired by the printed and written word.
The Art of Lost Words is an exhibition of design, typography and illustration inspired by well, forgotten words.
47 participants have chosen from among the dictionary’s lost but lovely words, with an open brief to create an original work inspired by their choice.
Lovely words such as Murklins, Kexy, Jussulent, Molrowing and Fubsy to name but a few. Stephen Fry would be proud.
Shown above is Caliginosity by Andreas Pohancenik meaning dimness. UV varnish and invisible UV ink were screen printed on ebony plike 330gsm.
All items were/are for sale, but alas some have already been snapped up. Proceeds from sales go towards the National Literacy Trust.
