An A to Z of St George’s, Colegate.

November 23rd, 2011

We have a bit of a thing for typography here at The Click, so when our creative director, Bobby, happened across the incredible hand carved letterforms of the local St George church, an idea was born.

The beautiful lettering found on stone ledgers throughout the church served as inspiration for an A to Z of the church and its history. Each unique letter forms the title of a story, anecdote, or interesting detail to be found within St George’s. Members of the congregation were invited to contribute to the publication by writing individual sections. The book is illustrated with monochrome images of chosen letterforms.

The book is designed to be welcoming and informative, suitable for casual visitors, regular churchgoers, and even keen typophiles. An A to Z of St George’s is available for £10 through the church, contact details of which can be found here. Proceeds go to the upkeep of the building.

We are pleased to note Grafik Magazine, an international design publication, and Eight:48 have both featured the project. You can find a more detailed look at An A to Z of St George’s on the Projects page.
