Cameron Moll’s Colosseo Letterpress Poster

Just wanted to take another opportunity to talk about Cameron Moll Colosseo iPad Martian Giveaway.

Cameron has created a stunning work of art out of typography. For those that look at text as letters, rather then an art form, these typography posters will knock your socks off.

Of note, if you are interested in the glyphs (the individual letterforms) of the Colosseo, you can purchase an .eps version from Cameron here.

These glyphs are based on the work of master Italian calligrapher M. Giovambattista Palatino (ca. 1515–1575),as featured in Libro di M. Giovambattista Palatino Cittadino Romano, published in Rome around 1550 AD.Several of the glyphs featured in the book were recreated by Cameron through hand-tracing, then as vectors, and then incorprated into the Colosseo.

So, thanks for sticking around with me while blathering on about the Cameron Moll Colosseo iPad Martian Giveaway. It has been a fun little test to see if I can try to work some SEO magic. Kudos to Cameron on building such a successful marketing plan with hundreds of inbound links… 😉
