Here&Now has returned from a short break, and first up … Don’t miss this gem! There are only 3 places left on Kitching‘s Concise Letterpress Typography Workshop – a two-day course in the fundamentals and details of typography, explored using letterpress equipment, and taught by world-renowned typographer and letter-press practitioner, Alan Kitching.
Promising to ‘give each participant an exceptional understanding of typesetting and the art of letterpress printing’, Kitching offers the opportunity to interpret terms from the typesetter’s bible The Printer’s Terms; using the letterpress equipment, type founts, rules and borders, and expressing them in the simplest, most direct and exciting way. The most successful works will be considered for inclusion in the first of a new series of Broadside publications by The Typography Workshop.
Wile admittedly it’s not on the cheap side at £750 pp, for those with the budget (and passion), it is the opportunity of a lifetime.
Next available workshop dates:
9–10 September 2011
23–24 September 2011
(For anyone who does take part in the course, Here&Now would love to hear about your exerience and see what you created).
