The Comedy Carpet is a beautiful typographical ‘carpet’ that spans across Blackpool pier.
The typography is so large that it can be read from the top of the Blackpool Tower.
At first sight, the Comedy Carpet looks as if the text is painted. In fact, each of the 160,000 letters is made of 30mm solid granite cast into high-quality concrete panels. Given the unusualness of the project, its complexity and scale, no one company was able to produce the work in its entirety so Gordon had the challenge of producing the work in-house.
