Sometime in the mists of the ’90s, I wrote an article for Publish on large-format printing. I became something of an expert, and I really wanted to see bus wraps used for some kind of artistique purpose, particularly if applied to a postmodernist vehicle like an Orion II. It never happened. Babs Kruger’s bus wrap (1997; later co-opted) was a disaster: Never send a polemical feminist artist to do a typographer’s job.


Rear half of bus advertises Centennial College in solid patches of magenta, chartreuse, and blue and orange

In order, I would use the current lexicon to describe these colours as violetred3, yellow3, lightslateblue, and sandybrown.
