I’ve been planning a trip to Blackpool to see The Comedy Carpet for years, a typographic homage to over 1000 comedians and also Europe’s largest pieces of public artwork. Artist Gordon Young and Why Not Associates produced all the letters (some ranging up to 1m long!) in a dedicated factory, creating literally tonnes of beautiful typographic off-cuts.

Some of these have been lovingly selected by the curators at the Jealous gallery and wonderfully displayed for all Londoners to enjoy and take home. Needless to say, I didn’t leave empty handed!
