Letterpress Legacy

World-renowned typographer and letterpress printer Alan Kitching has released a book documenting his extensive wood-type collection. 

Each page was carefully designed and printed by Alan in collaboration with Angus Hyland and have been reproduced at actual size

Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress: Founts from The Typographic Workshop is published by Laurence King 

“Presented as an A to Z, the individual letters are divided by full alphabets, giving the reader access to a large range of founts to reference in their own work.”

Letterpress Workshop 2015

Dates have just been announced for the 2015 letterpress workshop with Alan. The two day, hands-on course is suited to those with a keen interest in typography rather than complete beginners.

anonymous asked:

Do you think blurryface (as in the album) is like a story line?? Like in fairly local Tyler seems happy in the end and is wearing a black band around his arm. And with the songs inbetween fairly local and goner are like a story of overcoming your fears and demons. Sorry if this doesn't make sense.

Actually, in the recent photo shoot and interviews released from Altpress, Tyler says that he “wouldn’t say [Blurryface] was a concept album where a story begins with the first song and the last song ends the story.” I’ll post a picture of one of the magazine pages where I found the interview!

But I’m unsure about how Tyler and Josh plan to organize the album…

Its futility makes me so weary it’s hard to type the question, but I’ll type it anyway: Why do the elite Washington media, especially the influential Sunday morning shows, continue to pay deference to, and take seriously, the opinions of John McCain? Put another way: What would it take for the elite Washington media to reconsider their fealty to McCain? What would the Arizona senator have to do to disqualify himself as the authoritative voice on national security issues, military affairs and patriotism?

D.C. acts as if he has the authoritative voice on national security and patriotism. Enough already! It’s not true
