poster for Type From London— Letterpress Art Exhibition

This event has ended.

Letterpress printing has been vital to England as a country, with numerous woodblock printing centers coming into existence as printing technology advanced thanks to the Industrial Revolution. Today letterpresses preserve tradition while typographers continue to create high-end works of art. At this exhibition six typographers present their work, including posters explaining what the city of London means to them in black and the Union Jack colors of red, blue, and white.
