New York Types


—Art Directors Club (NY)—

*   *   *

The Art Directors Club, the premier organization for creatives in integrated media and the first global creative collective of its kind, hosted NEW YORK TYPES, a letterpress art exhibition which brought to life real words heard by locals on the streets of New York. These snippets of real New Yorkers’ conversations, quotes, and stories will be presented on the walls of the ADC Gallery by some of the city’s leading letterpress artists.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT  For the NEW YORK TYPES exhibition, each artist or group—currently including Swayspace, Center for the Book Arts, The KDU, Peter Kruty Editions, and Tarhorse Press—has picked a collection of NYWI ‘Script’ entries to interpret in his or her own letterpress style, bringing the real words to life letter by letter. The artwork is for sale in limited editions of 10, with a total of 500 pieces for sale. This piece was made by Typozon as a member of the Keystone Design Union for the Letterpress Art Show in ADC Gallery (NY)
