Verified Beauty

A type specimen book inspired by the art and beauty of  the renascence painting The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli I have looked at the comparison of beauty over the years. 


The typeface Garamond was originally hand rendered in the 16th century and has been developed into a digital world. Much like galleries and museums can be compared to social media; in documenting images and artists. 

I have then created new Instagram posts or redesigned the originals using the Garamond typeface to show how it is used in a more modern format. 


I chose to use the Instagram terms of use as the body  text, this came from how comparing something also  adds restriction. Which is exactly what the T&Cs do.
