Modular Typography: Building Letters on the Press
with Richard Kegler

Friday & Saturday, 10:00 – 5:00

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.

The historical context and physicality of type continue to be his greatest interest and shape the evolution of P22 in digital and analog projects. Kegler is currently the director at Wells Book Arts Center in Aurora, NY, a trustee for the American Printing History Association (APHA), and is former chairman of the board for the Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA).
