The Letterproeftuin gave a workshop relief printing at the Graphic School of Rotterdam.


Together with the students we designed and created a typeface which eventually got converted to an OpenType font.


 

The assignment we gave was; A wood printed alphabet, each student one letter, build up from little laser-cut pieces of wood.





Here you can see photo's of the printing and preparation process.



The wood printed alphabet converted to an OpenType font.

Thanks to Spielerei for helping us.

 


All the individual letters printed on 500x700 mm sheets where bound together in a huge 'Font Book'.
