the colossal colosseo


Good morning. I came across this awesome type piece via the always fabulous Graphic-Exchange. You probably won't notice anything special from the image above, but take a look below...


This is another example of how having passion for something and sticking to it can lead you to a great outcome. This took the better part of a year to complete, and it shows.


Inspired, obviously, by the Colosseo during a 10 year wedding anniversary trip to Italy, Designer Cameron Moll pieced each and every letter together to create the distinct elements of the Italian structure.


Here's a close look at the detail put into every angle. You can see the orientation of the letters represent the various arches and nooks. Below is a video from the printers at Bjørn Press in Utah, showcasing the process of putting this piece on paper. A great behind the scenes.
