Ancient Norse Cosmology

Conceptual exhibition identity for the British Museum consisting of a series of leather bound book along with various other deliverables.

The leather for the book covers was laser cut for the purposes of authenticity and giving the book a distinctly aged look.

The typeface is based on the ancient Nordic language. It was an anglicised version of the ancient Germanic runes. To give it an authentic “etched/chiselled” look, each letter was carved into Lino and used to digitally finish the type.
