When design turned digital in the 1980s, Kitching changed direction. He bought a printing press, printed by hand and breathed life into the arcane world of letterpress, and became an inspirational teacher for a new generation. In a digital world, his artwork and design is more relevant and recognisable than ever. alan kitching The first edition of the book will be a collector's edition, featuring a book jacket that has been hand printed by Alan himself and wrapped around the book as a removable dust jacket/print.

The 2015 Legacy of Letters tour and workshop with Alan Kitching will take place in Northern Italy from June 27 to July 8. It will consist of six days of touring museums, libraries and churches in Lombardy and the Veneto and four days of letterpress printing with the celebrated British designer Alan Kitching. After Padua, we will drive to Cornuda where our time at the Tipoteca will begin with a day of calligraphy before the workshop with Alan Kitching starts. More Pricks than Kicks. Samuel Beckett.

ALAN KITCHING Alan Kitching is one of the leading designers of post-World War II Britain. In 1989 Kitching established the Typography Workshop in London to use the traditional techniques of letterpress printing to produce highly evocative graphic images for himself and for commercial clients. Among the latter have been The Guardian newspaper, the Tate Gallery, Borough Market and others. From 1991 to 2006 he taught letterpress printing at the Royal College of Art. Kitching is well known for his Broadside series, specifically the typographic "maps" which many graphic designers have tried (but failed) to emulate. In these designs and his other posters he uses metal and wood type in ways that transcend the contemporary notion of what letterpress printing is and can be. For Kitching, letterpress is not nostalgia. His two day workshops in London cost £900 and are frequently sold out. This workshop with Alan Kitching in Italy is thus not only a rare opportunity to study with a master, but a bargain. West Greenwich Village. Letterpress print designed by Alan Kitching, 2013.

Alan Kitching prefers small workshops so that he can devote as much time as possible to each participant.
