A literary map called Venice with a English Accent was created in collaboration with the Venetian artist and writer Katia Margolis, with the participation of Robin Saikia. The British have come to Venice since the Middle Ages, and by Shakespeare's times it was a very popular city among English tourists. Over time, the Americans were added to the British. They are also represented on this map. The authors of the quotes include Shakespeare, Byron, Dickens, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Tolkien - as well as the compilers of the map, Katia Margolis and Robin Saikia.
There are about 70 illustrations on the map. These include the iconic Cathedral of San Marco, Palazzo Doge, and lesser-known temples and buildings. And between words, seagulls fly, doves walk, carnival masks are scattered ...
Especially for this project, I built three typefaces: for the names Mano di Giambattista, for the land Terra Durante and for the sea - Acqua Aldina. The last typeface is variable, unique in flexibility and complexity. It is like the sea, depicted with an engraving stroke: now smooth, now stormy, now lulling with gentle reflections, now foaming and blackening with powerful strokes.
The English map has a sister: "Venice with a Russian accent." You can see and buy it right next door.
