The Right to Privacy

13.01.19

Before "privacy" was on the tips of our tongues and the top of our tabloids, it was on the minds of Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren, and its relation to personal freedom explored in their 1890 article "The Right to Privacy".

It's their text that I've shamelessly lifted today in playing around with a half-formed typeface I sketched up a few weeks ago. And, much like Brandeis (pictured above), I also appreciate windows and privacy, so have photographed prints of their text through my bathroom window — which creates some truly lovely noise and distortion on the text.
