Ultimate Tower / Studio M II

Tremendous design overload at!!!
Stefan Kanchev (1915-2001) was a Bulgarian graphic artist who drew each and every one of his works by hand. His extensive portfolio is so humbling and it's sheer breadth is staggering.

From the website:

Kanchev worked in all the areas of applied arts. He was an author of numerous covers of books with folklore fairytales, posters, trade marks, postcards, advertisements, forms and envelopes, post stamps, labels, packages and etc. His works are imaginative, with calm and clear composition, felicitous relation between fonts and shapes, clear forms and creative ideas. ... His passion was so great that often he worked night and day without stopping. The artist’s wife remembered that he was working at his drawing table till the last moment when he was taken to the hospital.
I wish I had a fraction of this guy's tenacity and talent. The logos are simple and so so effective.

Letterpress Coliseum Love  

Posted by Megan Moulos in , , , ,

Amazing example of concrete poetry using Roman and Italian typefaces and a letterpress.

From the website:

In March 2009, Cameron and his wife, Suzanne, spent several days in Rome to celebrate their 10-year anniversary. This was also a chance to observe in detail the Coliseum, which Cameron had already selected as the next subject in his series of letterpress posters.

Over the course of the next 12 months, the artwork was handcrafted character by character, totaling roughly 250 hours of work from start to finish. Characters from the Goudy Trajan and Bembo Pro typefaces form the Coliseum (or Colosseum), also known as today as Colosseo (Italian) and originally known as Amphitheatrum Flavium (Latin).

Additionally, glyphs have been recreated based on the work of master Italian calligrapher M. Giovambattista Palatino, as featured in Libro di M. Giovambattista Palatino Cittadino Romano, published in Rome around 1550 AD.

Each poster is printed on Somerset Velvet Black or Crane Lettra Pearl and letterpressed by Bryce Knudson of Bjørn Press in Provo, Utah, United States.

I NEED at least $100 to purchase a print. Love love love can be found here:

NEW! PIVS (Places I'll Visit Someday): Fucking, Austria  

Posted by Megan Moulos in , ,

I've been to Austria before, but apparently I've missed out on their crown jewel: the small town of Fucking. I'm pretty upset about this, because I was in Salzburg, a mere 33 km from Fucking! Fucking is a small town of just over 100 residents. British and American soldiers started the LOLZ in World War II, traveling to Fucking from their stations nearby to take meme pics. Tourists just love to steal this Fucking sign, which is apparently the only crime in the small village.
