My architectural photographs published in the book “Lettering” by Andrew Haslam

I have been nicely surprised to discover a few days ago that a long awaited book containing two of my architectural photographs has been published! The work, entitled “Lettering. A reference manual of techniques” (Laurence King Publishing, London, 2011 ), is authored by Andrew Haslam, an authority in lettering and typographical techniques, who lectured  at the prestigious London College of Printing (now called College of Communication) and Central St. Martin’s School of Arts and Design in the British capital. My photographs depict the lettering displayed on the entrance pediment of “Liga Culturala” building (arch. Ion Trajanescu, 1929) and a fragment from the great frieze embellishing the courtyard of Central School (arch. Ion Mincu, 1890), which together open the section entitled “Rendered Lettering” of the book. I am of course very happy that a sample from the vast architecture of Bucharest, as seen through my eyes, has thus found an international outlet in such an elegant medium afforded by this volume. It is my second photo-mention in a book, after last year another of my architectural photographs was selected for illustrating a book publihed by a law specialist publisher from Oxford, UK, details of which can be seen at this link. I wish all the possible success to Andrew’s book and hope that Bucharest’s edifices and their decoration would start drawing attention to an as wide as possible public!
