Colosseo in Type

I discovered Cameron Moll via Twig & Thistle. His latest work, Colosseo, is super cool.

"This artwork representing the Roman Coliseum was handcrafted character by character over the course of roughly 250 hours. Characters from the Goudy Trajan and Bembo Pro typefaces form the Coliseum, also known as today as Colosseo (Italian) and originally known as Amphitheatrum Flavium (Latin).

Additionally, glyphs have been recreated based on the work of master Italian calligrapher M. Giovambattista Palatino, as featured in Libro di M. Giovambattista Palatino Cittadino Romano, published in Rome around 1550 AD."

Neat-o. So I ordered it as a surprise for my man, the Roman.
