  • The Miraculous Mandarin - type experiment
     
  •  
    This project I made as an additional work for the posters of Béla Bartók's The Miraculous Mandarin ballet.
    In the story, a Mandarin (wealthy Chinese man) goes to Europe ... 
    My experimental typographic project was to draw the Chinese and the European letters together.
    I used a famous Hungarian writer Weöres Sándor's Chinese poem translations, to give them Chinese calligraphy look, by altering the serifs of the letters. After the modifications the poems are still readable.
