Project: Interpretation design Client: Lambeth Palace
For years, the library of the Archbishops of Canterbury had kept its archives largely hidden, through riots, upheavals, an execution and the Blitz. To be invited to design the interpretation material for the 400th anniversary exhibition of Lambeth Palace Library was a privilege that brought us into direct contact with an original Gutenberg bible, the first major book printed in the West which marked the age of publishing. Our solution encompassed creating a brand new exhibition identity, new interpretation graphics and also promotional material that helped to attract over 20,000 visitors.
