Situated just a few minutes from the gallery, no one showcases the beauty of traditionally crafted Letterpress better than New North Press- Richard Ardagh, Graham Bignell & Beatrice Bless.
The components and techniques of print making at their Coronet Street studio have remained virtually unchanged for centuries; and it is this traditional craftsmanship, coupled with the poetry and rhyme of our beloved East End which combine to produce truly magical and timeless artworks.
New North Press's Process
The New North Press’ ‘Oranges & Lemons’ artwork is a combination of two hand made techniques. First the bell motif was screen printed, then the letter press typography was laid out and printed using traditional wood and metal type on a Victorian Albion press.
