Booth # A7
Founded in 1984 by artist and master printer James Stroud, Center Street Studio is a professional printmaking workshop that publishes contemporary prints in etching, woodcut and monotype by emerging and established artists. This year at the Editions/Artist Book fair, Center Street will release a portfolio project with renowned type designer Matthew Carter. The portfolio will contain the 26 letters of the alphabet, all lower case, etched into copper plates with aquatint and printed with chine collé. The 26 letters are Carter’s own favorites from typefaces designed by him in a wide variety of styles, both historically-derived and contemporary. Some are from existing typefaces, some from type designs still in work. The portfolios will be printed in editions of 52 and offered during the E/AB Fair at a special prepublication price. Carter has been working with type since leaving school 60 years ago. Among his most familiar designs are the screen fonts Verdana and Georgia. Seven of his typefaces are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He was made a MacArthur Foundation Fellow in 2010.
