This piece was Maria’s submission for the Homage to Josep Maria Pujol, a group exhibition held at Barcelona’s Eina Espai Barra de Ferro Gallery in Barcelona.
Josep Maria Pujol was very familiarised with Jan Tschichold’s work. In 2003 he wrote the introductory essay of the book “The new typography” (in Spanish) by Jan Tschichold. This is the reason why I have chosen the popular quote from the same author “Perfect Typography is the most elusive of all arts” to create a lettering artwork in homage to the work and professional trajectory of my former teacher at Eina School of art, Senyor Josep Maria Pujol.
“The first picture shows the final piece. As you scroll down you will see my process of work from calligraphy, to hand drawing, to the final vector digitization. The lettering has many details and the final piece, although being a pure vector file has a warm and handmade feeling”.
Limited edition of 200 prints now available from Maria’s online store.
