Not even archiving can stop extinction – or I’ll eat my words

Last week you asked the question, ‘Where is the most incongruous place your work has been displayed?’ (Voxpop, DW 23 July), following the news that design products will hang from the rafters of Borough Market during London Design Festival in the Food With Thought event.

Creating the world’s largest edible poster for a British Library exhibition was the most incongruous for us. The poster was about ancient words that have become extinct. It felt incongruous, but relevant, in an institution whose sole purpose is to preserve and archive printed works. We sold miniature versions of the poster in the library shop for people to take home and eat.
