Poster – ‘Hope in honest error’


An inspirational Charles Rennie Mackintosh – lettered poster.

“There is hope in honest error. None in the icy perfections of the mere stylist”.
This stunning Duille poster is printed in crisp black and white and and features a quotation hand-lettered by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1901. Perfect inspiration from beautiful Mackintosh design.

Mackintosh designed a variety of lettering throughout his career.
The quotation from writing by J.D. Sedding, an English Arts & Crafts architect, was much admired by Mackintosh. His rendering of the text is strongly influenced by work from the Vienna Secession group, including Koloman Moser. The spaces between the letterforms and the visual rhythm of the composition have all been carefully considered. It’s a decisive and very successful departure from the rules of conventional typography.

Adapted from an original 1901 design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
