Alan Kitching’s A–Z of Letterpress

“The book displays Alan Kitching’s extensive wood-letter fount collection, which he’s amassed and restored over years in his south London print workshop. The book is divided up alphabetically, with each chapter featuring a single letter shown in up to thirty nine different founts. The chapters are divided up by spreads which each feature an additional full alphabet.

The book is beautifully printed in five spot colours, onto quite a bulky uncoated stock, giving it a lovely feel in the hand. It’s quite a curio of a book. A wonderful historical record of a marvellous collection though to be certain. And the 16 Line Runic Grotesque is utterly delicious.” [Via We Made This]
