Australian Ruins

Another Helvetica driven poster for the Australian Tourist Commission. The characteristics of the Helvetica typeface are: a square dot over the i and a double story a in lower case. In upper case it’s the way the horizontal part of the A is lowered.

I’ve never seen the ruins of this Convict-built church. Been to Tasmania twice and missed it both times.

There’s a fashion model vogueing in the entrance.

Anthony Trollope described Port Arthur as “a most wonderful place, almost an island, and probably the most picturesque spot ever selected as an enforced home for felons.”

Yes, I must visit.
