The cathedral’s annual Maundy Thursday literary event involves numerous guests reading from the Inferno section of The Divine Comedy.
For the poster, Bierut used the custom font Divine, a redrawn version of Frederic Goudy’s 1928 Blackletter (which was based on the original Gutenberg Bible). Fast Co.Design has an interview with Bierut about the project.
