The Language of London

Poster advertising the Language of London exhibition which celebrates the Johnson typeface

How wonderful to find this poster advertising an exhibition which celebrates the Johnston Typeface.

The typeface was commissioned in 1913 by Frank Pick, the Commercial Manager of the then Underground Electric Railways Company of London.

As you can see by the adjacent poster, this iconic typeface is still in use on the Tube today.

This is one of Lisa Pettibone’s pieces on display as part of the Elements of Capability exhibition at Lacock Abbey.

I liked how the warped metal transformed the paths, sky, grass and surrounding vegetation into something quite surreal looking. It’s a bit like how Capability Brown dramatically altered many of the landscapes he was involved with.

The exhibition continues until 22nd May 2016
