For this season’s look I decided to riff on the cyanotype and the x-ray or “Ray-o-gram” process from photography’s experimental days of olde! This was inspired by an exhibit by Jonah Samson that I reviewed early in 2022 for Galleries West. Jonah has spent a great deal of time creating cyanotypes from natural materials and I recalled emulating the process for some editorial stories I needed to illustrate years ago. I thought it would be a bold and striking way to market chamber music so I gathered various instrument parts and did some scanning and tweaking to get the graphic effect you see here. Font is the bold and reliable standard for vertical readability; Poster Gothic
Sooner or later, over ten concert posters, you get tired of all the blue!
And one last poster for the Emerson Quartet’s last ever Vancouver appearance.
