Book description

A series of prints to accompany ‘The Typographic Dante’, an exhibition of letterpress and typewriter art by Barrie Tullett, National Print Museum, Dublin. The works exhibited were typographic interpretations of cantos from Dante Alighieri’s ‘The Divine Comedy’ first published in 1472.


The folio reinterprets four artworks using five pantone spot colours; teal, red, two shades of silver and black. The cantos are printed in silver on each piece. The prints are based on the format of a fifteenth century edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy. The typesetting of the cantos is influenced by early printed editions of the book.


Photographs from the exhibition opening are by Mark Henderson. Additional photography by Kate O’Brien.
