So the exhibition opened on Wednesday, lots of hard work went into the creation of this by most people taking part. Thank you to all those that have help, but mostly thank you to Alex Cooper and Rose Gridneff for all their hard work they put into making this happen.
If you have a chance to visit the exhibition please do so. The work is amazing.
I still have several of my books i made for this available, please contact me via my website if you are interested in one.

Some amazing posters coming out of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie as can be expected. I have also just received a copy of Phil Baber’s Cannon Magazine, which (now that the dissertation is out of the way) i am itching to read. I’ll ask Phil if its cool to post some photos for people to see and if so ill post some up on here.

The Changing Face of Letterpress

“The Changing Face of Letterpress is an exhibition of staff and student work from the London College of Communication, seeking to challenge the boundaries of Letterpress within the current design climate whilst drawing from the rich printing history of the college. The exhibition explores the changing role of Letterpress within design education, from a typographical teaching tool to a medium that is igniting process-driven work from students within the School of Graphic Design.”
Love the packaging on Michael Marcovici’s Rolex Time Sand installation.
“Rolex Time Sand is an installation by Michael Marcovici. One bag is filled with 30 kgs of sand, which equals 30 days flowing in a standard hourglass. On the 18 palets, there are 972 bags with a total weight of 29.160 kg. They last for 81 years- our generous estimation of an average lifestime. The image in the middle pictures the artist’s lifetime already consumed: 39 years.”
