John Ruskin at St. Mark's, Venice

St Mark's Basilica in Venice is the most extraordinary place. It takes the prose of someone like John Ruskin, who was of course ecstatic about its architecture, to fully capture the madness of it all.


18pt Caslon Old Face from the Stephenson Blake foundry printed on a quarter-sheet of hand-made paper from Cartiera Amatruda, Amalfi. John Thornton illustrated our Venice Visited and he has redone the pochoir image from its title page on this poster. 34*49cm. 25.
