Other related projects

Here we show some current internal studio projects in development.

Most will become publications, fonts or online trials. They have all started life as points of interest for us and there is no formal brief other than to make something which shows off the subject to its best advantage. General themes are ephemera, the tactile nature of print, colour, form and the beauty or craft and other older technologies.

Jacques Liozu

Jacques Liozu

These maps were drawn by Jacques Liozu in the 1950s for a book ‘Provinces of France’.
The illustrations are completely at odds with the approach I use in my own work – this is perhaps their draw. I am drawn to the intricacy, the attention to detail, the humour, the colours and the calligraphy.
Liozu also produced maps of many other parts of the world. My research has found very little out about him so I am left to put together a mere appreciation which has been put together in a book which celebrates the graphic language of these items.
