Word play

Whilst on a brief break from work the other day I popped out, and stumbled across this at the So Far the Future gallery on Emerald Street. Described as an exhibition of typographic explorations into language’s labyrinthine pathways’. I love words, and any wordplay so this was a gem. Any exhibition that uses palindromes as their inspiration can only be a good thing. It definitely brightened up my day, and the gallery itself is cheekily tucked away off Lambs Conduit Street, so perfect for a lunchtime trip. Beats a sandwich.

Below are some examples of the works, available at Text/Gallery

Sator Square by Happycentro

Graham Bignell & Beatrice Bless – Mikado

Mary Plunkett/Hand & Eye Letterpress – Tooting Too

Very much looking forward to their next exhibition which is called ‘Dot and Line’ and is will be an exhibition of typography and design celebrating the various manifestations of these most basic of marks, appearing (and disappearing) continually throughout the history of technology and design. Perfect.
