The Spirit of Brighton in Typography
To capture the culture and spirit of Brighton I created a letterpress print that focusses on the arts and entertainment scene of the seaside city. The print charts the town’s rapid development as a cultural destination and describes its many attractions and events.

Printed from a set of three large zinc plates, the print show some natural alignment imperfections.

Limited edition of 100 prints. 640 x 425mm.
