Since 1995, London-based artist Paul Noble has been engaged in a monumental project to meticulously depict a fictional city, Nobson Newtown. A master draftsman, Noble renders fantastical aerial perspectives as wall-sized drawings in pencil on paper. Described by the artist as an “exercise in self-portraiture via town planning;” the city is unpopulated and the buildings, upon close inspection, are revealed to be three-dimensional letters, Noble based “Nobfont” on the forms of modernist architecture, Ye Olde Ruin expands upon a small section of a larger drawing by the same name. With “Nobfont”, Noble spells out an excerpt from the epic Persian poem, the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
