From funeral typography to a rebirth of initials.
Cnocession is a project presenting a sample of funeral typography from a French cemetery. A project by Fanny Garcia & Jack Usine (GUsto) combines typography and photography. It is a creation of an abecedarium made of letters handpicked from headstones and memorial brasses in the cemetery of Castillon-la-Bataille.
The result is a patchwork of graphic shapes, gravestone architectures and floral wreaths and decorations, exposing local habits and knowledge. ‘Cnocession’ depicts the relationship between people and remembrance, giving birth to a collection of the venerable component of classical publishing: the initial.
