since 1918. Well, maybe not that long.

If Cameron Moll’s amazing work wasn’t enough of a reason to keep tabs on his letterpress poster series, maybe the iPad can peak your interest? Cameron has started a series of iPad giveaways aimed at promoting is latest work Colosseo. Here’s what Cameron had to say about taking on The Roman Coliseum as the subject of his latest type poster.
What began as a 10-year wedding anniversary to Rome concluded a year later as an artistic endeavor to reimagine the Coliseum with type.
Over the course of the next 12 months, the artwork was handcrafted character by character, totaling roughly 250 hours of work from start to finish. Characters from the Goudy Trajan and Bembo Pro typefaces form the Coliseum (or Colosseum), also known as today as Colosseo (Italian) and originally known as Amphitheatrum Flavium (Latin).
I’ve already received my copy of Coloseeo (#87/1000) and have it hanging proudly over my desk and in the spirit of Cameron’s iPad giveaway I decided to make some iPad wallpapers. Everyone, martians included can have Cameron’s work beautifully displayed on their newest Apple device.
Hey you! Yeah you, get in here and say something. Someone has to be first, might as well be you.
