A gothic diversion

In the Spring of 2017, the Buddhafield team started casting about for a theme for the 2018 programme of events. Being a bit cheekily macabre, I suggested “it all ends in death”. Much to my surprise, this struck a chord with a few people, and after a bit of discussion they arrived at the somewhat less confrontative “Dance of Life and Death”.

I chose the Mrs Eaves font family (Zuzana Liko, Emigre, 1996) for both this and the parallel poster project because of it’s origins in Baskerville. Baskerville’s own origins are in the period just before the emergence of the first Gothic literature, so there was a historical resonance. The stark black and red is a venerable pairing, which contrasts the sanguine with the moody blacks.
