Look what arrived today! Typographic Conundrums by Harry Pearce. [photo was lost to time…] This awesome little book is full of typographic conundrums that need to be visually decoded into revealing a common saying or phrase. Very clever in their wit and simplicity. I was lucky enough to attend Cumbria University where Harry Pearce was asked to give a […]

V&A Decode

Yesterday I visited the V&A Decode exhibition. The exhibition describes itself as “bringing clarity to digital information in a visual way”.
