    About The Work

    This limited edition artist book by Mungo Thomson delves into themes relating to the nature of time, reading, mass culture, and graphic design. A clever, slow-motion flip book, Font Study (Time) condenses the evolution of TIME magazine’s logo from its conception in 1922 to its 2011 incarnation. Thomson refers to the project as “a phenomenological font study,” as he challenges the viewer to engage at once with philosophical inquiry and pop culture branding.
