A small letterpress studio in Guildford, Surrey, England.

Typonauts — type specimen poster

A poster that can be hung either way up. The idea came after watching the movie Gravity. There’s no right way up or down. The sheet was run twice to get the large type to repeat in both orientations. Then the smaller (18pt) type was set out, and overprinted. It would have been too easy to use the same technique to just reverse print the same again in the other orientation, so I replaced the smaller type with different sorts, and moved each one around to get a different repeat pattern. They are supposed to be the stars in the galaxy.
