Type & Space
Exhibition of the work of the late typographer Desmond Jeffery at Spike Island. This exhibition featured posters, prints and cards produced for Robert Erskine and his St. George’s Gallery who were at the forefront of a renaissance in British printmaking, as well as more political pieces including those for the Partisan coffee house and the Solidarity group. Some of the best examples of the marriage of Jeffery’s political and professional beliefs can be found in projects such as the Solidarity manifesto (1968) and Red Paper (1969). Curated with Charlotte Hetherington. Presented as a case study at St Bride Library as part of their Letterpress: Something to Say event. Exhibition photography by Stuart Whipps.
