Pret-a-printer: Letterpress by The Officina Athelstane 

5 August - 5 November 2017

Merilyn Luck Gallery

FREE

In Pret-a-printer: Letterpress by The Officina Athelstane, the artifacts of letterpress are used to give expression to a quirky typographic exploration of things “fashion”. Before the advent of computers, and for most of printing’s 570 year history, design was undertaken by printers and compositors at the printery, rather than dedicated graphic designers. Pret-a-printer honours this off-the-peg method of design, where the printer produced something eye catching and original from a limited palette of (metal and wood) design elements employing both practical skill and  imagination.
