Type Scale

A print from Jake Hopwood's Printing Chair Utskrift Stol.

The Camberwell Press team took over the Camberwell Space and transformed it into an array of innovative Letterpress themed work, highlighting the possibilities on offer from the analogue technique. The work spanned from contemporary interactive pieces, through to more traditional outcomes using traditonal production methods.

In a period of increasing international interest in the qualities of Letterpress typography, TypeScale was a representation of student, alumni and staff typographic work exploring the possibilities of wood and metal type from Letterpress through to laser cut letter forms.

The work challenged the accepted notions of size, scale, process and methods of reproduction of typographic printed outcomes and explored the future room for the development of Letterpress in the College and beyond. Read an interview with David Coventon about the show here.

The Letterpress workshop at Camberwell, run by James Edgar, houses a wealth of wood and metal type faces in the collection, including some unique to Camberwell College of Arts.  This valuable workshop resource allows students to design and print their work on site, gaining essential understanding of an analogue production process, as a counter to the predominance of digital design technologies.

The show was curated by David Coventon, James Edgar, Benoit Ollive and Freddy Williams in the Camberwell Space on Thursday 2nd December 2010.

Interesting concept about the Type scale. I have heard about it that it is the creation of the alumni staff typographic work exploring the possibilities of wood and metal type from letterpress through the laser cut letter forms.
