Who would expect such exciting typography tp be used on what would normaly be classed as a stagnant topic?

Ok, so when we talk about typography and design within a religious context, most of us would normally expect the usual, very formal and functional format (with the exception of the stunning illuminated documents that monks have laboured over)

It was a pleasant surprise for me to come across this almost modern-looking example of The Lord’s Prayer, made from delicately cut sheets of card, in different finishes and layered in a way which engages on a purely aesthetic level while walking around Cusworth Hall in Doncaster.

This is not, by any means, a scoff at religious design… Religious design, in itself, appears to have more time spent, devotion poured into it and love of the beauty than the mass-produced trimmings that abound us now.

Its more of a tip of the hat to the creator that steps away from conformity, to create something truly stunning in his/her own personal way…..
