Type Tuesday: No end of print?

Eye’s panel of printers, designers, photographers and publishers will talk about the past, present and future of printing this Tuesday evening at St Bride

The Type Tuesday event at St Bride Library in London (2 September 2014) is entitled ‘No end of print?’ and will include speakers from Calverts, New North Press, Kin, Pureprint and Hoxton Mini-Press, among many others.

Richard Owers of Pureprint – Eye magazine’s printers since issue 68 – will speak about the way the print giant has adapted to the fast-changing world of printing.

New North Press’s Richard Ardagh will talk about printing the specimen posters for A23D, a new, eighteen-line letterpress font designed by Henrik Kubel and Scott Williams of A2/SW/HK and 3D-printed by Chalk. A short film about the project will be premiered at the London Design Festival.
