Day 3 - 'Text as Image'
Day three was spent visiting more galleries! In the morning we went to a gallery full of typography and Polish Posters.
This gallery centred around the historic development of the rare occurrence of 'text as image.'
Not only did the exhibition offer an interesting and exciting insight into forms of script and design/styles of type, but also the overlapping roles of text and image.
I photographed some of my favourite pieces from the gallery:
I particularly like how interesting and original a lot of the typography is. It is so exciting to be in a gallery full of it!
Much of what I saw (and recorded) was extremely simple and minimal which made it that much more successful and appealing.
