  • Typo Lamp papercut


    "The renaissance of the type" exhibition 2008
    Matt (Society of Hungarian graphic designers and typographers)

    This is a handmade paper cut and the text is the history of the incandescent lamp.

    "The difficulty of the thing was that the largest printable size was A3. Therefore, the lamp is a very small one, some holes are 0.5 mm in size. The oval forms in the middle of the letters were the hardest to cut out but since I have also prepared marquetry it was not a problem for me to cut small parts with a knife. The paper is much easier to cut than thin wooden boards used in the inlay. Many people asked why it is not machine-made. I think exactly the craftsmanship makes it beautiful."
