Entertaining Types - Alan Kitching

This incredible little film features , described as “one of the world's foremost practitioners of letterpress typographic and printmaking”, designing for the likes of Dazed & Confused, Saatchi & Saatchi, Tate Modern and Clarks from his workshop in Kennington, South London. This film by was shot as part of ‘s custom covers series and introduces to Alan's poster making process using wood and metal letterforms to create unique one off works. However, it's his own personal story that makes this for me as he describes his with his late wife and design partner Celia, an honest and touching film that's definitely worth a watch.
