I’m very excited to launch my latest project, Postcards from Rome. In June this year, I will heading off to Rome in Italy to participate in a Masters of Typography workshop, run by the School of Visual Arts in New York and one of my typography heroes, Lousie Fili is going to be there. Yay!
Anyway, I digress, I’ve created a Tactile Typography Books Arts project that you can participate in … yes YOU.
Whilst in Rome, I plan to make a series of tactile typography postcards. These postcards will be inspired by you and your requests for people, places and things from Rome. The finished postcards will then be combined into a book “Postcards from Rome” which will contain photographs of these handmade postcards, the stories behind how they were made and your stories about why they were chosen.
So head over to Postcards from Rome, research the city and choose a meaningful place, person or thing you would like to receive a postcard from. Be as creative as you like—it can be the Colosseum, Julius Caesar, or a bowl of pasta, so long as it is quintessentially “Roma”, and then choose the payment option that best suits you.
For as little as $100 you can receive an original tactile typography postcard, a signed copy of the limited-edition hardcover book and the chance to participate in an International Book Arts project (option three).
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
