The changing face of Bowie
I just spotted this typographic screen print produced exclusively for London’s V&A museum to coincide with it’s forthcoming David Bowie exhibition.
It features the lettering and bespoke typefaces from over 100 designers. Matt white ink has been printed over rainbow holographic paper which looks brilliant. Each print comes with a certificate naming the full list of contributors including, Jonathan Barnbrook, Ian Anderson and Anthony Burrill.
I love the look of it but I think the overall effect is a little crowded and too much like a list of type specimens. I’d have preferred it to be bigger too. The print is 50x50cm.
