Wearing Whitman's Words

On Saturday I went to Wearing Whitman's Words: A Typographic Exploration at the Lucky Gallery. As explained on the site:
These designers were asked to make selections from Leaves of Grass to visually explore letter forms. The designed words will be displayed on the front of t-shirts with the selected text written on the back in a font consistent across each of the shirts. This contrast will highlight how the shape of letters can add meaning to the words we read.
There was some great design here so if you're in the area you should definitely go check it out. If not, you can always have a look at the websites of the designers involved. Thanks Lucky Gallery,
for the free t-shirt and the beers!
