The long-awaited monograph of Alan Kitching, world-renowned typographer, designer and letterpress practitioner, is finally here, available exclusively at laurenceking.com. Spanning over fifty years, this lavish volume leads us from Kitching's first typographical experiments under the auspices of mentor Anthony Froshaug to his most iconic creations at The Typography Workshop.
'With a wizard's mix of inks and fonts, Alan has produced unique posters and broadsheets... he has created a new language of vision: 'Magick' – with a 'K'' — Derek Birdsall, Graphic Designer.
The collector’s edition has a limited run of 200 copies. Each one comes in a box and includes a hand-printed letterpress signed print, which is numbered and wrapped around the book to form the jacket. Check out the short film below.
