Join us for our Film Night at St Bride Library on Tuesday 4 September at 7:00pm
We’ve got an exciting programme of short docs about design, type and printing planned for next week’s Type Tuesday event. So, we would like you to join us at St Bride Library to see the World Premiere of Adrian Harrison’s 94 [8000 One-Offs], about the making of the Eye 94 cover.
Join the team behind Eye magazine – editor John L. Walters, art director Simon Esterson, art director Holly Catford and assistant editor Sarah Snaith – alongside special guests from Eye’s universe of graphic design and visual culture, including director Adrian Harrison and many of the designers featured in the evening’s films.
We’ll be showing a range of short films about design, type and printing, including Harrison’s A23D, following the development of A2-Type’s 3D-printed letterpress font and featuring Richard Ardagh at New North Press; and 21st Century Victorian, on Joby Carter’s passionate and personal take on the art of Fairground signwriting. Also showing is When Better Letters met Cliff Headford, Dan Bassett’s moving interview with the Bristolian signwriter; and Monotype’s 2017 short film, The Wolpe Collection, exploring the type designs of Berthold Wolpe, reinterpreted and modernised by type designer Toshi Omagari, produced by Zetteler Films.
Tickets are £12.50 (Standard) / £10.00 (Friends of St Bride) / £8.00 (Students) and can be purchased here.
A reminder that all proceeds from our Type Tuesday events are donated to St Bride Library for the preservation of their invaluable collections.
