Abstract

6x6 is a collaborative letterpress research project that brings together six leading UK based Higher Education design schools with active letterpress workshops.
The project combines a traditional understanding of letterpress composition with a contemporary approach to design education. This has been realised through the collaborative creation of; this book, a travelling exhibition, a series of reflective essays, conference papers and the initial phase of the construction of an inventory of type and equipment within letterpress workshops in art and design schools in the UK.

University of Brighton, Camberwell College of Arts, London College of Communication, Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design, Lincoln School of Art & Design, Glasgow School of Art

Additional Information:Students and staff from each college have responded to the immediate 1200ft radius of their letterpress workshops. Pages within the book have been printed at each respective college and collated at London College of Communication. The book includes 36 original letterpress prints and six accompanying litho printed essays, in an edition of 200.
