Getting Upper - N
Featured in:
2011 Design Annual
"Inspired by language-based experimentation, Getting Upper curator Amos Klausner charged 26 designers with reimagining a letter from the alphabet. The announcement that Mark Twain's classic The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was being republished, replacing the word 'nigger' with 'slave' served as the foundation for our solution. Two pages from the book are used to form the letter N, while all of the body text is crossed out, except for the source of the controversy." 18 x 24, 3-PMS, the first hit of black contains the text. The second overprints it, to simulate crossing out the original, silk-screen.
