Illustrator’s upcoming exhibition is inspired by the Victorian era

February at The Book Club will showcase Fiftyseven’s distinct style, Neo-Victorian Maximalism.

Neo-Victorian Maximalism, anyone? No, I didn’t know what it meant either. But I’m glad I found out.

London-based illustrator, typographer and graphic designer Fiftyseven, aka Steve Mitchell, launches his new print exhibition at The Book Club on February 10, which has been curated and directed by Liat Chen.

After developing an obsession with nineteenth century typography, Steve strived to push the aesthetic into a new, eye-catching and absurd style - Neo-Victorian Maximalism.

You have until March 27 to catch Fiftyseven's unique blend of strict symmetry and beautiful typography - plus a dash of the occult, masonic symbolism and anything else that fits.
