Imaginary Menagerie

Astrid was invited by Text/ Gallery to participate in the collective exhibition “Imaginery Menagerie”, featuring new work from leading and emerging designers in the UK and internationally. 19 designers were given an open brief to explore language’s difficult, tongue-tripping, unpronounceable labyrinths typographically and in their own language. We chose the classic Spanish tongue-twister: “Dime cuantos cuentos cuentas cuando cuentas cuentos” (Tell me how many stories you tell when you tell stories) and created a series of foil-blocked blank books.
