John Baskerville invented the 'Baskerville' typeface. This is a memorial to him, called 'Industry and Genius' - it is outside 'Baskerville House' in Birmingham.

It is a burst photo but an art.

I had to look for a certain time to catch the thing. Congrats!

Thanks, polytropos. It's not an ideal viewpoint, and the DOF is too shallow really, but I quite like it anyway. The blocks would actually type 'Virgil' if you could find a big enough printer to fit them in.
