New Work: ‘Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress’

A-Z-0001_RT_620

Graphic designer, typographer, letterpress printmaker and teacher, Alan Kitching is internationally renowned for his expressive use of letterpress type processes. His latest book, Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress, showcases the extensive wood-letter fount collection of The Typography Workshop.

The book is a collaboration between Kitching and Angus Hyland. In 2014, Hyland approached Kitching with the proposal of hand-setting letterpress alphabets to celebrate the Typographic Workshop’s 25th Anniversary. Together they devised a page layout and Kitching set the entire book, which is printed on letterpress and then reproduced at the same size.

Angus Hyland has designed Nick Cave’s latest book, The Sick Bag Song. Written during Cave’s 22-city tour of North America in 2014, the book reproduces in full colour 22 sick bags filled Cave’s scribbles about his encounters. Sitting somewhere between the styles of The Wasteland and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the book provides an intimate insight into Cave’s imaginative universe.

From England with Love is a new 48-page booklet by Mulberry that was designed, edited and written in collaboration with Angus Hyland and his team. The book tells the story of the brand’s heritage, creative philosophy and dedication to English craftsmanship.

Founded in 1971 by Roger Saul with a birthday gift of £500, Mulberry has grown into Britain’s largest manufacturers of leather goods. From their two factories in Somerset they have produced a series of iconic bags, each known for their use of natural leathers, their shapes and their names – Roxanne, Bayswater, Alexa, Lilly and Cara.

Throughout the years, Mulberry’s blend of Somerset’s countryside style and London’s city chic has been influenced by collaborations with fashion’s elite, including Luella Bartley, Giles Deacon, Stuart Vevers, Alexa Chung and Cara Delevingne.
