About this project

All the lettering was drawn and cut in situ after many weeks drawing and revising. The work was completed in six weeks with the aid of ex-students to compliment the magnificent bronze animals by David Backhouse.

The letter forms are loosely based on Roman Rustic forms which have the advantage of being highly compressed allowing more information to be stored in a smaller space.
