An anachronistic print by British artist and calligrapher Seb Lester featuring an intricate metallic gold letter ’S’ rendered on black paper, comprised of hundreds of symbols including cave paintings, hieroglyphs, emojis and corporate logos from prehistory to modern times via the Dark Ages and Renaissance. Lester tells Colossal:

I have spent two decades studying the most beautiful examples of intricate letterform and ornamental design I can find. This letter ‘S’ is arguably the most intricate letterform that has ever been drawn.

Fair enough.

Available here for €92 in a limited run of 85 62cm² prints.


Incredibly detailed architectures by artist Benjamin Sack – surreal geometries and labyrinths rendered in pencil and pen, many inspired by cosmological symbols and what the artist describes as his own ‘fear of blank spaces’.

Sack’s work ‘Labyrinths’ exhibits at the Direktorenhaus Museum in Berlin until next January, if you’re passing.
