A Life In Letterpress

If like us you love Letterpress printing, then you're going to need to a get your hands on a copy of 'A Life in Letterpress' by world-renowned typographer, designer, and letterpress practitioner Alan Kitching.

Spanning over fifty years this lavish volume leads us from Kitching's first typographical experiments to his most iconic creations at The Typography Workshop.

It covers his years designing alongside Derek Birdsall, as well as his time teaching letterpress at the Royal College of Art, and showcases his most colourful and expressive pieces, including his prolific work for The Guardian. Kitching's work hangs in private collections and galleries but it has also featured on everything from magazine and book covers, postage stamps and theatre posters, to wine labels, billboards and signage

Designed by Simon Esterson of Esterson Associates, this long-awaited monograph documents the work of world-renowned typographer, designer and letterpress practitioner Alan Kitching.
