I just saw these amazing labels over on The Ministry of Type. I’m not a drinker, but I would buy Marisco just for the calligraphy on the labels. Each name in The King Series is preceded by the words “The Kings” and by it’s neatly crafted name of Bastard, Thorn, Wrath, Favour, and Sticky End. A great story to go with wine, intriguing and smart.
After being helicoptered out to the island to photograph and research my client’s ancestral history, I returned to New Zealand and came up with the name for each – relating to a specific story discovered in that research. The names were then also matched to the characteristics of a specific wine variety. A top NZ calligrapher, Peter Gilderdale was then invited to create the stunning calligraphy that features on the labels (authentic to the relevant 12th &13th century period of history, but with bit of a modern twist).
