Let there be light” is inspired by map insurance lettering. The text is taken from the first few verses
in genesis. The cartographic inspiration is a subtle
hint to the creative blueprint instructions. It is printed on cordenons moondream (turns transparent upon hot stamping).
This decorative alphabet was produced by Nigel Bents, Paul Oakley and Jonny Holmes at Chelsea College of Art & Design. Based on a downloaded Bodoni Poster font, it was designed digitally by students using Illustrator, laser cut out of 3mm plywood by Cut Laser Cut in Vauxhall and mounted on type-high block by Stef Willis in the college workshop.
It was then printed at Graham Bignell’s New North Press in Hoxton. There they will remain; and in time, no doubt, be added to. An example of a digital start leading to an analogue finish.
