Mediaeval in Padua by Russell Maret( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follow Russell and Annie through the mediæval city of Padua as they hunt for inscriptions (and the occasional meal). Delight at the multitude of variant forms, the calligraphic whimsy, and sculptural skill of a hand full of anonymous artisans who together, across centuries, map a transition from the improvisational joie of Romanesque lettering to the highly ornamental Round Gothic epigraphic style. The book is printed on Mohawk paper using my rendition of Baskerville{u2019}s Great Primer typeface and embellished with drawings of letters, a seven color map of Padua, and 16 pages of photographic plates. Number 1 in the series Swan and Hoop

A Roman inscription on Santi Giovanni e Paolo al Celio by Russell Maret( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take a close look at the magisterial c.1150 inscription on the porch of Santi Giovanni e Paolo al Celio in Rome. Though typically consigned to the dark fringes of Roman lettering, the inscription on Giovanni e Paolo offers a refreshingly non-Imperial articulation of Roman-ness in the lively variety of its 133 letters. The text is set in the {uFB01}rst versions of my Texto Portuguez and Lisboa Italic types and printed on Mohawk paper. Embellished with a transcription and translation of the inscription, drawings of letters, a map of Rome, and photographs of every letterform. Number 2 in the series Swan and Hoop

The translation is that of the King James Bible. The type formes are inked in migrating shades of blue ink, conceived as a visual descent into and eventual reprieve from darkness over the course of the text.
