Breton Boat Numerals

BRETON BOAT NUMERALS

WELSH SLATE | 2014
2 PIECES, 1150mm x 40mm x 200mm

A collection based on sketches and photographs taken in Finisterre in 1986 of registration letters and numerals seen on decommissioned fishing vessels. These heavily stylised numerals were particular to the Western peninsulas of Brittany and became a letter carving project and the subject of an article in issue 29 of Forum, the journal of Letter Exchange. These pieces, in association with the letterforms forming part of the same project, are available for exhibition in maritime & lettering contexts.
