Typography Project: Fantasy Dinner Party
- Designer Jack Adams
The brief: Invite any 6 people to a dinner party dead or alive. You must express these people by the use of typography only in the format of a book and bound by yourself.
I decided to pick famous and iconic persons from queer culture that I’ve always admired or hand a keen interest in.
- Harvey Milk
- Marsha P. Johnson
- Freddie Mercury
- Marlene Dietrich
- Crystal La Beija
- Michael Alig
Crystal La Beija
Is known for her loud screaming rant about losing a drag pageant in the 1968 documentary The Queen an iconic and hilarious moment of queer culture I wanted the rant she spoke to be sprawled out across pages of over invites, as like she was interrupting.
The French Fold allows her words can wrap around into another page not stopping for breath. The Colour pink type and thread standing for her iconic pink lip stick! Basically this book was made for her.
She’ll always get the last word…
