I can't wait to see Reverting to Type
at the Standpoint Gallery
, London - a 'typographic extravaganza' showcasing the work of 20 letterpress studios from around the World."Reverting to Type is an exhibition of contemporary letterpress practitioners, showcasing how a centuries-old craft is being reinvented for modern day usage."
The exhibition, curated by Graham Bignell founder of artisan letterpress print studio New North Press
and designer Richard Ardagh
, includes work from some of our favourites; Hatch Show Print
, Occasional Print Club
and the one I'm most excited about - Yee Haw! Industries
Much of the featured work will be available to buy along with a series of collaboration prints from New North Press. Standpoint Gallery will also be running an Adana press so visitors can hand-print personalised Christmas cards!
The exhibition is open 10-6 everyday up to 24 December 2010 and then after a Christmas break, runs from 4 - 22 January 2011.Images copyright Standpoint Gallery.
