TOP NZ BOOK DESIGNER GETS NEW YORK TIMES COMMISSION
Top New Zealand book designer Sarah Maxey's entertaining talk on her hand-lettering at the Typeshed 11 conference held in Wellington in February led to a commission from the New York Times to illustrate one of William Safire's On Language columns.
The word she was given is 'fulsome', and her interpretation has just appeared. Click on William Safire above to see how the NYT has used her art and to read Safire's interesting column on the use and misuse of langauage.
