Slut i lager


Monotype, Salsford, no date. Single broadsheet printed in red and black. (57 x 44 cm). The series of five broadsheets with ornaments from five centuries published by Monotype are widely admired. Designed by Sarah Clutton.
The single decorative leaf is a motif which long proceeded the arabesque and is Classical not Islamic origin. It is used singly, often as a paragraph mark, whereas in the true arabesque the leaf is combined cursively into a complex interlaced geometrical pattern. The leaf and the Arabesque often appear side by side in books of the late Renaissance.
