Personal Spencerian project, funded through Kickstarter. This is either an exploration of concept through decoration or it's just a joke, depending. It's a riff on Mies's quote, referring to modernism's minimal ideals, but done in maximal flourishy Spencerian. Less - it's printed on chipboard; More - it's letterpressed in silver foil; Less - it's made up of only four lines; More - one of the lines is purely decorative; Less - Spencerian flourishes are curved lines; More - obviously it's more flourish than substance. Featured in the Type Directors' Club Annual.
