I am on a quest to learn about the founders of Experimental Typographic Design. In order to discover more, I felt the need to take myself back to the very first experimental Typographers who started it all. Who were they? Why did they do this? These questions led me to the Italian Futurists. I just tipped the iceberg of this vast subject area with this mini-edition, entitled Anarchy, published Online at Savannah College of Art and Design.
This research inspired me to recreate the famous poem titled Il Pleut (It’s Raining) to Ça Brille (It Shines) for Martin Luther King's day. The original poem Il Pleut was written by French poet Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918). My version Ça Brille cites the famous King quote, "We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."
