Until 16th October it’s really worth catching this LCC exhibition – Alan Kitching and Monotype: Celebrating the Centenary of Five Pioneers of the Poster
Alan Kitching and Monotype have collaborated to produce a unique set of prints and type specimens commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of five graphic design legends; Tom Eckersley, Abram Games, FHK Henrion, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand.
A poster has been created in the spirit of each individual’s work and using the typefaces associated with each designer. Also exhibited alongside Alan’s work will be posters designed by Eckersley, Games, Henrion, Müller-Brockmann and Rand.
The Five fold-out Monotype Type specimen / posters feature Kitching’s prints and the front shows photographs of each designer in their studio with a introductory text by John L Walters.
We are running a twitter competition to win a set of these Monotype type specimens / posters soon! – keep checking the twitter feed
