Craft in the Architectural Review

February’s Architectural Review which features edible lettering on the cover – jelly made to look like terrazzo designed by food-chitects Bompas and Parr.

The edition focuses solely on craft. In addition to the full recipe for terrazzo jelly, it features an interesting article on the print production process of the magazine and a die-cut stencil of the AR typeface.

These incidentals punctuate more serious pieces which consider the nature of authenticity, mass production, the art of making and technology.

Interestingly, despite the cover design, there is little mention of architectural lettering as an artform or craft yet with the increasing interest and prevalence of “craft” within architecture, there is surely a role for lettering artists to play.
