chuch of type / keeping it real
Yes, yes, another letterpress video.
Chuch of Type is like a mini version of Hatch Show Print but right here in Los Angeles, well, technically in Santa Monica. It's real letterpress with only the real tangible typefaces in metal and wood form. His work showcases the eclectic use of type with bold faces, layering colors, linoleum carvings and more. It makes me so happy that there are printers like Kevin that are still doing things the analog way and getting dirty to set type one letter at a time.
Check out his prints for purchase here.
In LA? He encourages visitors.
