The Metamorphosis of type
I’m loving this book cover by Jamie Keenan, just featured over on Creative Review. He reworked an old Italian typeface, giving it more ‘curliness’ and legs to attain a “shiny black quality that beetles have and that weirdo, fiddly, twitchy thing that a lot creepy crawly things have, too.”
Here’s a breakdown of just SOME of the issues going on in this vid: women fighting for the right to drive in Saudi Arabia, farmers fighting for fair wages in Colombia, homophobia and systemic LGBT discrimination in Russia, forced evictions of indigenous peoples in Brazil, police brutality in the U.S., Syrian shelling, as well as the continued protesting for civil rights in Iran and Egypt.
…How many of these have you heard about?
