You have to go way back to a medieval term to properly describe the craft of Marian Bantjes. If such a organization existed today, we might expect to find her as Master of the Guild of Illuminated Typographers. Created specifically for The Swap Meat, this piece places a thoroughly modern, digital message in a beautiful, hand-drawn, analog context. "Click me. Read me. Open me. Buy me. Love me." Indeed. In some ways it's the perfect Swap. To borrow a phrase from the NYT Magazine, it completes the "virtuous circle of artful swag."
