Anthony Burrill’s collection of typographic ephemera is online
Known for his persuasive, up-beat style of communication graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is a typographic lover par excellence.
To prove it, the man whose work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including the Barbican Art Gallery, the Walker Art Center and the Design Museum, London has launched his online Archive of Collected Ephemera & Printed Material, a website that gathers together examples of inspiring pieces of print, graphic design, typography and as the name suggests, other ephemera.
Made in collaboration with Jon Bland and Neal Fletcher it features around 400 images, each captioned and tagged with keywords to help clarify the collection. “I want it to grow into a useful online resource of an overlooked area of design.” he says. It already is.
