If you live in London or will be across the pond in the next couple months, be sure to visit New North Press for a fine exhibition of progressive letterpress work including some Yee-Haw prints. 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 is curated by Graham Bignell of New North Press and graphic designer Richard Ardagh and features prints and publications by progressive practitioners from around the world. To coincide with the exhibition, New North Press has published the first of an on-going series of collaborative prints by contemporary artists, designers and wordsmiths.
