Over the last 30 years, Barrie Tullett has been working on a project to depict all 100 Cantros of the Divine Comedy, using letterpress, typewriters and Letraset. The Divine Comedy is a poem written in the 14th Century by Dante Alighieri, which describes Dante’s journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, and represents the soul’s journey towards God. Tullett created these typographic works as a visual response to the unfolding narrative, and used letterpress to depict Dante’s passage through the Inferno. This is a National Centre for Craft and Design Touring exhibition. Barrie Tullett is Programme Leader for Graphic Design at the University of Lincoln and is the author of Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology (Laurence King Publishing, 2014).
