The Barbican: The Wilde years – Oscar Wilde & the Art of His Time

The Barbican: The Wilde years – Oscar Wilde & the Art of His Time

Barnbrook designed publicity material, printed matter and exhibition catalogue for this exhibition that covered artists who worked at the same time or who were influenced by Oscar Wilde. We worked extensively with Victorian letterforms, revising and redrawing them for the main title. We also looked at Victorian book typography for the invites and book design, acknowledging the time of the exhibition but putting it in a contemporary context.
