Type Tuesday: Film night
Tuesday 4 September 2018 in the Bridewell Hall 7-9.30pm
Eye magazine’s next Type Tuesday evening at St Bride Library will be a ‘Film night’, featuring a cavalcade of short documentary films about type, lettering, design and printing culminating in the World Premiere of Adrian Harrison’s 94 [8000 One-Offs], a fifteen-minute documentary about the people and processes behind the making of Eye 94’s ‘variable data’ cover last summer.
We’ll be showing a wide variety of short films. These include: Harrison’s A23D (2014) about A2-Type’s 3D-printed letterpress font, featuring Richard Ardagh at New North Press; When Better Letters met Cliff Headford, a moving interview with the Bristolian signwriter directed by Dan Bassett; Harrison’s 21st Century Victorian, on Joby Carter’s passionate and personal take on the art of Fairground sign-writing; and Monotype’s short film by Zetteler Films, The Wolpe Collection, that explores the type designs of Berthold Wolpe, reinterpreted and modernised by type designer Toshi Omagari and released in 2017.
Adrian Harrison’s 94 features dazzling footage of the magazine’s printing and binding at Pureprint as well as engaging interviews with HP’s Hadar Peled Vaissman, cover designers Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil (MuirMcNeil), Richard Owers and his team at Pureprint and Eye’s John L. Walters and Simon Esterson.
Please join us for a complimentary glass of fizz on arrival; we will continue our conversations about the films through to the question and answers at the end of the evening.
