Using eight basic shapes and a consistent grid, participants manufacture experimental type on multiple flatbed presses. Kegler guides participants in designing and producing collaborative posters from assembled typographic scaffolding to build letters and erect words. The resulting varied edition is a construct of patterns and layers of color—a typographic mind map of the creators. Participants learn the basics of letterpress and problem solving while exploring the generative constraints of P22 Blox.
