Project based on an alphabet of unusual words by The Project Twins. These unusual word graphic prints are pretty entertaining interpretations of the unique words themselves.
Bold graphics and visual wit are used to interpret and represent a collection of strange, unusual and lost words. The full collection was exhibited at the MadArt Gallery Dublin during DesignWeek 2011. It consisted of 26 50cm X 70cm Giclee Prints on Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Rag (each in a limited edition of 10).
Prints are available in their online shop.
