GUNPOWDER, TREASON AND WHAT
This project is a typographic investigation into one date throughout history, the 5th november. A date synonymous in england with Guy Fawkes night. I wanted to change peoples perceptions of this day, by trying to introduce other important events throughout history that have also happened on this day, that are overlooked by the mass popularity of the story of guy Fawkes. To do this i have re-written the famous rhyme for each of these different events, from the St. Felix Flood in 1530 to the birth of Raymond Loewy in1893.
the publication also becomes a typographical history as it is set in type faces designed in these years.
