THREE KINGDOMS 三国. Inspired by the classical Chinese literature, “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” “三国演义”. The Three Kingdoms period was an era of disunity and chaos in China which saw the rise of many legendary heroes and military strategists. It has been celebrated in operas, films, novels – even comic books and video games. Inspired by the era, this personal work crafted the names of the three kingdoms into the actual map, and became a fun exercise in typography. Hand drawn sketches completed in 1995. Digitized graphic in 2002, modified and printed on t-shirt in 2009.
