About

TheGallery is delighted to host the Alan Kitching and Monotype exhibition, a collaboration between two typographic forces:  Alan Kitching, a leading practitioner in letterpress, typography and design; and Monotype, global trailblazers in type, and home to some of the world’s most popular typefaces.

This exhibition shows the process behind the making of the collection, following Alan’s journey from research and sketches through the Monotype Archive to Alan’s workshop and finished pieces.

The Alan Kitching Collection pays tribute to five influential graphic designers: Tom Eckersley, Abram Games, FHK Henrion, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand, honouring their life and work. Each designer is represented by a monogram made from overlapping type, representing the designer through colour, composition and typeface.
