Letterpress Catalogue

I set out to catalog all the wooden type available to students. I produced a catalog book and printed banner to promote letterpress at the university.

Each spread displayed in actual size the printed font as well as name, size, style and weight information. The right page included a count of how many and what characters are available.


A section at the front of book gave an explanation of useful tips and guide


As well as categorizing the 67 fonts available into serif, sans slab I also catogorised a sub section with numbers, punctions and borders etc.


A spread from the punctuation section


The cover can be used as a ruler as the lines are drawn in pica increments. The line measurements are then carried throughout the book to help the user understand the letterpress sizes. The diagram also represents the letterpress cases in the studio.
