Sir Gawain and The Green Knight



The Sir Gawain and the Green Knight zine is a personal project inspired by the original story and the David Lowery film adaptation.

The persistence of the Green Knight fable over many centuries is explored typographically. The zine features an amalgam of typefaces, whose influences span medieval calligraphy to more contemporary forms. This includes the Sinistre typeface by Jules Durand, Old English Text, and various versions of Caslon.

The typography creates a foundation for organic splatters of ink, which mirror the verdant setting of the fable, along with Sir Gawain's hardships and eventual growth.
