Honour Spread, from the book I Wonder, by Marian Bantjes
MARCH 2 TO JUNE 5 Mere text cannot do justice to I Wonder, a book of essays and artwork by graphic designer and typographer Marian Bantjes. Famous for her painstakingly ornate designs, original lettering and clever writings, her work will amaze. Onsite at OCADU displays a collection of Bantjes’ past works, prints, posters, wallpaper and magazine covers. The main attraction, however, lies within the pages of
I Wonder. Often described as a 21st century illuminated manuscript, it will reconnect you with the art of print.
