Gas from a Burner Illustration

This is a lettering based illustration I produced for James Joyce’s ‘Gas From a Burner’, a recent book collaboration with Mary Plunkett at Distillers Press. The illustration depicts the first two lines of the poem. The piece was inspired by the Wiener Werkst├Ątte, a collection of designers and artists based in Vienna (1903 – 1932) and one of my favourite design groups of the early 20th century.

Designed, illustrated and printed from the original linoleum block by Jamie Murphy at Distillers Press, September 2012.
