Wooden Toy in association with Semi-Permanent and Design is Kinky (DiK) invited 17 leading international typographers, designers and illustrators to graphically interpret a line of lyrics by famous (both past and present) singers, songwriters or bands through a combination of experimental type and illustration. Unfortunately we at Fresco missed the exhibition in Melbourne but lucky for us we can purchase Wooden Toy Quarterly’s 7th edition – the ‘Music’ issue, LYRICS AND TYPE aims to document each artists personal views on the importance of music ‘vs’ influence and inspiration. My favourite, from what I have managed to sneak glimpses at so far, has to be Rik Lee’s!
