Nelson art — worth its weight in gold

The 2014 Nelson Arts Guide has been out for a couple months now and is flying off shop shelves across the region.

It was a great pleasure to work with the RADi team on this special 20 year commemorative issue of the Nelson Arts Guide. This issue showcases over a hundred artists and craftspeople from Nelson to Golden Bay, as well as many of its finest wineries, cafés and cultural entities.

This year we asked the contributing artists to each create one letter in their style for the cover and set them in gold — ink that is. With classic typefaces and a new larger magazine size, the 2014 Nelson Arts Guide is truly a work of art and worth its weight in gold.

Artists created unique letters which we clear-cut and covered in over-gloss to make them shine.

The type was set in Baskerville, known for its readability and timeless presence.
