OLD PHOTOGRAPHS BACKSIDES
It is truly amazing and at the same time unfortunate that such craftsmanship and dedication is nowadays on the verge of extinction... Presenting here a beginning of my recently founded collection of typographic mastery covering 5 countries for now( Austria, Italy, Romania, France & Hungary ).
For the moment I can name only one person who is courageous enough to investigate this niche. A true master of old habits, a pattern lover, a true experimentalist, and a brilliant craftsgirl ... probably you've guessed it by now... it is none other than Marian Bantjes.
How much time would you spend on a typographic treatment? How much passion would you invest in the one thing you are doing right now? What style is defining the age we are living? What will future generations know us by? What do you do?
