The project’s name comes from de the union of the words Epytaph (Epi = on), (Taphos = Grave) and Typo. The main concept of the Project is to honor a typographer. I selected a typography, specifically a character and then design and built a packaging. The typography used was the Clarendon, desinged by Robert Besley in 1845. The materials used for this project are representative of the funerary world. The wood, soft and warm material represents the meat. On the other hand the marble, cold and hard, represents the bones.

What’s Unique?
It is unique for its noble materials and its unique and minimal shape.
