Fiona Banner: Font Book

Lynn Valley No. 11

Edited by Roger Bywater, Reid Shier.

British artist Fiona Banner (born 1966) recently designed her own font, utilizing an amalgamation of typefaces she had employed in a variety of text-based artworks. In the course of creating this font, Banner became fascinated with the double meaning of the word itself. In addition to a typeface, a font is also a receptacle for holy water, used, chiefly, in baptismal ceremonies, with religious associations derived from an etymological root in Old English and Latin, which roughly translate as “a fountain, a spring, or a source.” Banner began amassing images of baptismal and holy-water fonts from churches around the world. Font Book presents the full spectrum of her collection. Resembling something of a supply catalog for the devoted, this compendium presents every baptismal font configuration imaginable, along with accompanying church names and location specs.
