Florida-based designer Cameron Moll has unleashed his latest typographic masterpiece on the creative world. Inspired by a trip to Rome 12 months ago, the designer, author and speaker unveiled the latest in his series of letterpress posters, constructing the Roman Coliseum entirely out of letterforms.
From the Colosseo website: “In March 2009, Cameron and his wife, Suzanne, spent several days in Rome to celebrate their 10-year anniversary. This was also a chance to observe in detail the Coliseum, which Cameron had already selected as the next subject in his series of letterpress posters. Over the course of the next 12 months, the artwork was handcrafted character by character, totaling roughly 250 hours of work from start to finish”
There’s also a video which documents the entire process (embedded after the jump), which incidentally also offers a wonderful testimonial to Canon 7D’s video capabilities.
