Letterpress workshop for the Identity Through Print unit Level 4

Level 4 Illustration.
Letterpress workshop for the Identity Through Print unit.

Here we are experimenting with the letterpress equipment in the Eldon print rooms. In pairs students arranged their initials as a monogram, from which several prints were made using the Proofing press and Albion press. Further experimentation with workshop furniture, locks, type and magazine collage added to the aesthetic of the monogram. All in an attempt to raise further awareness of type, image and the juxtaposition of objects set against positive and negative space.
