A series of typographical prints by Cambridge School of Art's Jim Butler and Will Hill.

Will's prints continue the themes explored in his 2008 exhibition at Clare Hall, Cambridge, in the use of found typographical material to explore local venaculars and ideas of cultural identity. Previous work has drawn upon the architechtural typography and street graphics of Budapest, Porto, Barcelona, Lisbon and Cambridge. The forthcoming series includes material from photographs taken in Kracow, Lodz and New York.

Jim's work is a series of new typographical screenprints based upon on-going drawings of shop signs in Budapest, Cadiz, Rome, Nice, Porto, Cambridge and other cities. Considered and developed alphabetically, these screenprints form the basis of a new series of bookworks.
