Calling all letterpress artists and designers!
Our friends at Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft are currently running an open submission for their forthcoming exhibition, Interrobang: an international showcase of letterpress print. The exhibition will be curated by the museum for The Village of Type, part of the Brighton Festival and the Artists’ Open House trail.
The Village of Type will be a season of exhibitions, workshops, lectures, residencies and printing events celebrating the centenary of the London Underground typeface, created by Edward Johnston when he lived in the village.
Publishers Random Spectacular will also be drawing on entries for a new publication looking at letterpress from around the world to accompany the exhibition.
Interested? Find out more and enter online here.
Entry closes on 14 February 2016. One submission per entry fee. All work must be printed using letterpress (although entries are to be submitted digitally), pieces can be created specifically for Interrobang or be existing work. Size is not limited, but pieces must be 2D and as this is a selling exhibition, you must have at least 5 copies of any submission.
Beautiful lettering, beautiful graphics and beautifully aged - what's not to like about this collection of bicycle headbadges?
I've had a slight obsession recently with vintage beach cruiser bikes and I particularly love the graphics, so imagine my delight when I heard about 'A Cycling Lexicon' - a book filled with an A-Z of glorious bicycle headbadges. The badges are a selection from the collection of cycling enthusiast Jeff Conner, Professor of Biology at Michigan State University curated by Carter Wong design who also designed the book.
You can buy the book here.
More fabulous lettering and typography snapped in the wild over the last year.

Happy New Year.
It feels like only yesterday I was saying that at the start of 2015 - last year flew by for us and our poor blog was (once again) left unloved for far too long but I promise this year will be different.
For starters, here are two exhibitions in London right now that are guaranteed to bring a little happiness to you in this dreary month;
"Whaaam! Pop! Kapow! This is pop art, but not as you know it."
The Tate Modern is showcasing lesser-known international artists from the pop-art movement in the 1960s and 70s, exhibiting together more than 200 works from Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. Previously considered a western phenomenon, the exhibition demonstrates just how far globally this bright and bold movement spread and how it became a, "subversive international language of protest".
Showing until 24 January 2016 on Level 3 at Tate Modern, London.
Design icon alert! Over 380 "personal letters, photographs, drawings and artwork, products, models, multi-media installations and furniture", exhibits by Charles and Ray Eames are currently showing at the Barbican. The World of Charles and Ray Eames explores over 40 years of their pioneering and often experimental work, looking at their collaborators and their influences on 20th century architecture and design.
Showing until 14 February 2016 at The Barbican Gallery, London.
