An exhibition marking the completion of a series of works from artist, Barrie Tullett, each a visual representation of one of the 100 cantos of Dante's Divine Comedy.
Barrie Tullett is the featured artist at this year’s Artists’ BookMarket, with a month-long exhibition at Custom Lane, running on from the fair. Tullett is the author of Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology, Laurence King Publishing, 2014, and has been working for the last thirty years on an obsessive project to make a visual representation of each of the 100 cantos of ‘Dante’s Divine Comedy’ using the ‘obsolete’ technologies of wood and metal type, typewriters and letraset.
