The Letterpress Workshop
The print, still at concept stage, will tell the story of the journey of the body of typographer John Baskerville (1706–1775). It is available in a limited edition via Kickstarter for $25 (£19), the price includes the print, the magazine, and postage to anywhere in the world.
As we can not yet show the print, instead we made a photographic tour of the letterpress workshops at the Royal College of Art. It is located on the second floor of the labyrinth that is the Stevens Building. This anarchic but colourful chamber is where technician Ian Gabb has spent years providing support and running workshops in the art of the medium.
