Lettering does not have to fulfil a utilitarian rôle. It can also exist as art and contribute to the quality of a space. In the recently refurbished Edward Square in North London, a specially comissioned poem by Andrew Motion has been 'carved' by Gary Breeze on two low concrete walls alongside a grassed play area. The exposed aggregate of the no-nonsense letterforms contrasts with the smooth surround, they vary in size with the height of the wall and the rythmn of the words themselves.
