the writing's on the wall




Found this gorgeous typographic work via dailypoetics. A contemporary Trajan's column yet reminiscent of first kisses and childhood tree carvings. Humankind has made its mark on walls and posts for centuries. And I have always loved the notion that very few degrees separate us all. I don't know much about this project but a lovely archetype of man's need to record history in a tangible voice.
