That's Rather Artsy

New, 1 comment

For the last three years, designer Cameron Moll has been re-imagining the Brooklyn Bridge as a letterpress print made entirely out of type. Though he's applied the same technique to Rome's Coliseum and Salt Lake City's main temple, his final rendering of the bridge, which uses as its building blocks letters in two wood-block fonts that would have been around in the late 19th century, is two-tone instead of monochrome. The colors were, in fact, painstakingly selected?Pantone book held up to the bridge and all?to match the granite and limestone used to construct the iconic span. On Kickstarter, Moll has already raised almost four times what he asked for to complete the project, but limited-edition prints are still available for $100 apiece, with an estimated delivery by Christmas.
