Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress

“A must for letterpress enthusiasts and graphic designers, this is a covetable showcase of Alan Kitching’s fount collection.

Each page has been carefully created by Alan Kitching in collaboration with Angus Hyland, making this book a work of typographic art in its own right.

Presented as an A to Z, the individual letters are divided by full alphabets, giving the reader access to a large range of founts to reference in their own work.
