Who Could Say No?

The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine hosts an annual Maundy Thursday evening reading of selections from the Inferno, the opening section of Dante Alighieri’s medieval masterpiece the Divine Comedy. The dramatic literary event is presented in the Cathedral crossing and features a lineup of distinguished guests. Pentagram’s poster for this year’s reading uses the identity for the Cathedral designed by Michael Bierut, most recently seen on signage for the institution’s four-legged parishioners. The graphics employ the custom font Divine, a redrawn version of Frederic Goudy’s 1928 Blackletter.
