UK GPO telephone directory covers design 1932 - 1955
A spread showing the design and typographical changes initiated by the UK Post Office Telephones for directory covers from the mid-1930s until c1955. As noted the big shift to a clearer, more considered layout came with the post-WW2 Leonard Beaumont redesign at a time when the GPO was motivated by clear design. Sadly, in many eyes, the commercial pressure to reintroduce advertising saw a dilution of the ‘purity’ of the covers as time progressed.

In the silent-film era, a movie’s typeface was a crucial part of its identity. Now a type designer in Minneapolis has tried to recreate the font from The Good Bad Man, a Douglas Fairbanks vehicle from 1916. “In 1916 the titles would have been painted or drawn on a smooth surface and then photographed with the motion-picture camera. There were no optical printers in those days, so the titles would literally have been shot by someone hand cranking a motion-picture camera.”

It’s always a pleasure to get to work with the Bird man, this time, for his recent show in Pawtucket, RI. Poster measures 18” x 24” in size and is entirely hand-drawn and hand-printed using three inks (two of which are metallic and sparkly!) S/N artist edition of 60 prints.
