DCA’s introduction to letterpress course runs for 4 weeks, and provides designers with an insight to this creative printing technique. Designers will utilise wood and lead poster type from the Design College’s type collection, as well as having the opportunity to experience how type was cast on a Ludlow typograph and a 1905 Linotype typecaster. Participants will work on a range of projects over the 4 week course, final designs will be printed on a range of presses from single colour proof presses through to a hand fed platen press. Working intently with individual pieces of type, heightens sensitivity to the interactions between the letter forms and your design.
