Diverse Characters: An Exhibition of Letterforms and Books by Russell Maret

decoration15 Sept. 2014|23 Jan. 2015

Russell Maret , artist, printer and typographer, was introduced to letterpress printing in 1989. His first fully mature book came in 2007, Prometheus Bound, followed by Mediævel in Padua, his first book in his own type.  His many type designs result from his long study of the letterforms of the last 2,000 years.

The exhibition hat RBML highlights the artist's interest in pre-typographic letterforms, his many typefaces, and his amazing excursions into multi-color letterpress printing.
