Gilmore Girls, that long gone (long in TV terms) already-classic show about what looked like two teenagers, except one was a mother and one a daughter and they lived in a totally unrealistic idealized town – is the kind of show I like to have on during ironing: I follow the stories as background noise but don’t really watch watch what’s happening. But as there wasn’t much ironing this week, we did this instead:

Of course, this is another in the series of hand-made typography and yes, it was all done manually, dot by dot by dot, you get the idea, to the accompaniment of fast-discussed Gilmore love troubles. It did take quite a few episodes, too.

After part 1, part 2, and a short break a time has come for the, for now, final part of Iconic Painters. Same rules apply: three icons per painter, an answer in white to highlight underneath each poster.

This part contains some of our personal favorites (but so did the previous ones) and some we would probably find really hard to guess. Enjoy!

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669)

Jasper Johns (born 1930)

Damien Hirst (born 1965)

Henri Matisse (1869–1954)

Edgar Degas (1834–1917)

Marc Chagall (1887–1985)

Gustave Courbet (1819–1877)

Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

If you enjoyed it, drop by again because the Iconic Posters project will be continued – some time in the future.
