Is there something you only love, without hating it a little? Can you hate something completely, without any love? Can love exist without hate?

Exactly 100 years after Edgar Rubin created his famous Rubin’s vase – the godfather of all figure-ground illusions – this poster is published as a typographic tribute to the Danish professor of psychology. Silkscreen printed in a super bright red color, this übersized poster requires some empty wall space. Seriously, this poster is pretty big. Printed in a limited edition of 20 copies only.

A smaller version of this typographic illusion is published in Dutch Alphabets, a portfolio showcasing lettering and writing art.
