Narnia

Here are some images of Daniel's work for the film "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", by Andrew Adamson.   For more information about the film, visit the official website, http://www.narnia.com/

The lettering on the Stone Table was the job for which Daniel Reeve was brought onto the Narnia crew.   The brief here was to create an alphabet with a vaguely early Christian feel to it, but of course it couldn't be mistaken for any actual existing language.   This design, used in the film, was influenced by some text in The Book of Kells.
