Typographic Trees For A Library
A series of solid oak pillars echo the physicality of books and brings words to life at the Crawley Library in the UK.
Graphic design company, Why not Associates, recently collaborated with visual artist Gordon Young to create a series of typographic oak columns for the Crawley Library in the UK. The tree trunks had slogans, words and typographic elements carved into them, and were installed from floor to ceiling like supporting pillars.
A total of 14 were set up in specific relevant locations throughout the library, reflecting different subjects from the gothic to the romantic.
