REVERTING TO TYPE.
Good friend and graphic designer Richard Ardagh, is also somewhat of a Letterpress master. If you are around London, then there is a good chance you may well have seen some his glorious Letterpress interpretations of classic English nursery rhymes such as ‘Oranges & Lemons‘. Well, Richie created these at the New North Press. One of the few remaining working Letterpress’ in the country. Together with founder Graham Bignell, they are curating an exhibition of the finest Letterpress practitioners from around the world. The video above is a charming introduction to both men, and an intimate peek into the craft and desire to create with a Letterpress. The exhibition should be a winner for all fans of graphics, type and craft.
