At the end of each year, the Royal Mail releases a set of themed Christmas Stamps. We were briefed to design and produce a limited-run display piece to showcase the stamps, depicting scenes from the King James Bible. The piece needed to compliment the miniature works of art, without overpowering them.
Our solution is inspired by the typographic beauty of the original King James Bible. A modern take on the 400 year old book resulted in a pocket-sized Bible with extracts relevant to the stamps. The stamps were then tipped-in by hand to form a crucifix.
