Intertitle (2021)

Intertitle is a wiro-bound book design celebrating the typography of Silent Cinema’s intertitles. It was a response to the 2021 ISTD Student Assessment brief Silence is Golden, and was awarded with a pass and membership of the society.

The book features a foreword introducing intertitles, a short written history and archival images of 9 typefaces used in intertitle design, alongside specimen pages for a contemporary revival of each. The type revival specimen pages use different paper stocks and page sizes to enhance the content. They each include a large-format gate-folded page which was contact printed in a darkroom, then scanned and reprinted to replicate the process of making intertitles during the silent era.
