Poetry Commission

Because of the sheer length of this poem and the constraints of the finished size brief, it was impossible to write the whole thing out in calligraphy not to mention the budget, I had to use calligraphy and typeface combined.

I gave the client the choice of two finishes.....both contemporary. The first was a painted border with gold strands running through it.....

The second had pastel squares tumbling through the words from the top to the bottom. It was no great surprise that this is the one the client chose as it was my favourite too......

The poem by Rudyard Kipling - The Thousandth Man, can be read here:
