Stu's Critical Printing Blog

Print is what I am and what I do. I teach on the Art & Design Foundation course at York College, where I look after the Visual Communication specialist area. My personal interest is in anything printed but type in particular. I make works which are printed and have a healthy obsession for beautiful and innovative printing, commercial or otherwise. I also like photography which is printed on lovely papers and surfaces.

Jon Tonks at Impressions Gallery, Bradford

(viewed 193 times)
Much photography is generic at the moment but Jon Tonks has produced one of the most fascinating bodies of work I've seen in this genre of photography for a while. It means something and is about something. He also exhibited ephemera and other documentation in the gallery which contextualised the images beautifully.

Linotype - The Film

(viewed 1887 times)
‘Linotype: The Film is a feature-length documentary centered around the Linotype type casting machine. Called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by Thomas Edison, it revolutionized printing and society. The film tells the surprisingly emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world.’ http://linotypefilm.com/

The trailer is available at the link and the film looks beautiful.

Stormtrooper doing Letterpress

(viewed 895 times)
The original post just says ‘stormtrooper using a printing press’. The fact that he’s using wood letter seems to have passed the original blogger by.
