Linocut, Typography, Paris

About four months has Mark Andrew Webber spent to design his new artwork and the past two months he carves it: An enormous linocut map of Paris!

But that’s not the highlight! The whole map is a typographic interpretation of the French street and building names. With its 1.8 metres across, it’s an fantastic artwork!

“With this Paris map, I’ve tried my hardest to make it accurate, but I’m not a French speaker so it’s bloody hard. It’s just a lot of checking and I’d rather like the pieces to not have to be chopped up, as that kind of ruins it.” (Mark A. Webber)

Recently, Mark is searching a giant printmaker (150cm+) to make some prints.
