Celebrating All Types is a print movement that aims to inspire reflection and civic action among letterpress artists and the community at large.
From Carefully Made Letters Come Powerful Words
Celebrating All Types got its start when letterpress artists attending the 2021 Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum Wayzgoose were invited to exchange posters exploring the creative possibilities of being inclusively in community with one another. In 2022 it expanded to the design community in the form of hands-on letterpress printing workshops that generated a public art installation at the AIGA National Design Conference in Seattle.
Today, it’s an open-ended call for letterpress printed art celebrating diversity and inclusion. All are welcome!
