Los carteles tipográficos de Agent Illustrateur

La agente ilustradora se llama en realidad Christine, vive y trabaja en Montréal (Canada) y estos carteles son uno de sus trabajos experimentales con el foco en la tipografía, las texturas y una cierta abstracción en el uso de la tipografía.

Cada cartel corresponde a una poesía; “Spring comes on the World” de Emily Dickinson, Bird On The Wire 
de Leonard Cohen y Ah ! Sun-Flower de William Blake
Aquí tenéis, por si os interesa leer además de mirar, los textos completos de los poemas.

Spring comes on the World
I sight the Aprils
Hueless to me until thou come
till the Bee
Blossoms stand negative,
Touched to Conditions
By a Hum.

Bird On The Wire
Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
Like a worm on a hook,
like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.
If I, if I have been unkind,
I hope that you can just let it go by.
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you.
Like a baby, stillborn,
like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
But I swear by this song
and by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee.
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch,
he said to me, «You must not ask for so much.
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
she cried to me, «Hey, why not ask for more?
Oh like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Ah ! Sun-Flower
Ah Sun-flower ! weary of time.
Who countest the steps of the Sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers journey is done.
Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire.
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.
