Working in Bruton 2023 / Map


A Typographic Map . . . 

‘Working in Bruton 2023’ was designed / set & printed in the letterpress workshop by the students on ‘the early summer school’ — a four-day workshop in july

each year i do two summer schools —
(early & late) & a few one & two-day classes

this simple idea — concentrating on the hight street — conveys the various trades & professions /
different fonts aim to express different activities /

it works as a specimen of typefaces / but hopefully captures the energy of a small working town /
roads / paths / bartons & bridges are all kept as negative space / there’s even  a nod to the stepping stones on the river brue . . .
