Reverting to Type....

....Richie has stepped up his typographic game.

For a few years now he has been collaborating with Graham Bignell & New North Press to create beautiful, much sought after letterpress posters. Together they have now conceived, curated and created an exhibition full of new work from collaborators world wide. If the 'Reverting to Type' Private View, at Standpoint Gallery, was anything to go buy, it is a wild success, and should hopefully allow it to become an annual exhibition.

Read more here, see Richie's blog here and his website, here. Following, a few of us grabbed a bite to eat around the corner at Busaba to discuss the finer points of ligatures, serifs and kerning.

Oh, and make sure you visit the show....and if you like, buy a few too! Congratulations Richie.
