Erosion & Typography 2by Jason Permenter
Set of folded stationery cards printed on bright white, smooth card stock to bring your personal artistic style to everyday correspondence. Each card is blank on the inside and includes a soft white, European fold envelope for mailing.
ABOUT THE ART
Why? I'm a geologist turned designer, so it only made sense to combine both worlds. This print is second in a series of four, each of which explores the effects of erosion and weathering on the printed word.
The text itself is taken from a 1971 essay on experimental typography by the German designer and typographer Wolfgang Weingart, and is set in the Univers typeface. Univers was designed from 1954-57 by Adrian Frutiger, and is completely bad-ass.
