100 typographic works over 30 years, illustrating the Cantos from the Divine Comedy. Divided into the Divine Comedy's 3 parts of the Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise, ISTD member Barrie Tullett has taken one obsolete technology for each: letterpress for the Inferno, a typewriter for Purgatory and Letraset for Paradise (Paradise is not yet complete). These beautiful images are not to be missed.

Barrie is Programme Leader for Graphic Design at Lincoln and also runs the Caseroom Press.
