TwoPoint in use – The Fitchburg AlphabetAugust 16th, 2015
Catherine Griffiths has used MuirMcNeil TwoPoint for her ‘U’ on the front page of the Sentinel & Enterprise (Fitchburg, MA) daily newspaper ‘Alphabet Project’. Curated by artist Anna Schuleit Haber and commissioned by the Fitchburg Art Museum, the project ran from 13 July – 11 August 2015.
Twenty-six typographers were invited to contribute one original letter each to this project around which daily news and found urban stories are arranged.
Griffiths combined three TwoPoint ‘U’s – the magenta set upright, the yellow tilted one way, cyan the other, with the request that the newspaper avoided printing text over the magenta U.
‘This work of art is a limited-edition, daily experiment that explores visual language systems, the transport of text, and the shaping and meaning of news, both local and non-local. The project spans twenty-six days and highlights art, poetry, and news-stories that appear, not inside the paper but on its front page. The art is the newspaper, and the newspaper is the art.’ Fitchburg Art Museum.
