A Life in Letterpress

Alan Kitching is one of the world’s foremost practitioners of letterpress typographic design and printmaking.

He is renowned for his expressive use of wood and metal letterforms. He lives and works at The Typography Workshop in Kennington, south London, which he shared with designer, writer and partner Celia Stothard.

The exhibition will show finished pieces of work as well as showcase the method and process behind key works. Objects, artefacts and equipment from Alan’s workshops will enlighten visitors to the inspiration and motivation behind the work.
