This weekend Manchester lost the brightest, kindest, creative man, Peter Holden. - Just one week ago we shared a whiskey for Peter and a Dandelion & Burdock for me to discuss the Letterspace project including who should host the auction in his absence due to a trip to Milan that clashed with the new date. He was sad to now miss it having supported me fully from the start. Little did we know that he would only be with us then in spirit. We never know when these precious people will leave us. - For Peter, this project, full of passion for type, design, graduates and charity will continue to grow and I will never forget his kindness, encouragement and support. My thoughts go to his family and colleagues for the huge sense of loss that they must all feel. - Rest in peace, Peter. In his memory, let us be kind and encourage the passion projects of others so that creativity continues to thrive.
Huge thanks to #Letterpress experts @blush who are kindly supporting Letterspace by printing the invites for our Thursday Lates event at @whitworthart in April. Debbie of The Paper Collaborative and I had a wonderful afternoon taking a look around today testing the @slaterharrisoncheshire #CenturaMatt stock on the press. To top it all off, we called in on the nearby beach to end the day - what a location! The images also feature some exquisite work from Blush for @doddsgin #cityescape #letterpress #letterspace #typography #alphabet #letters #graphicdesign #blushpublishing
