Ten Years of Typism Books: Retrospective Poster Show

Apr 15, 2024
Typism Poster Show

Typism began as an idea for a one-day lettering conference on the Gold Coast in September 2013, and a small curated book of black-and-white artwork was produced to accompany it. 


The idea took off and ten years later, nine editions of the Typism Books have been published, and a tenth edition is in the works.

To celebrate Ten Years of Typism Books, in conjunction with the 2024 ATypI conference coming to Brisbane, Typism is hosting an exhibition showcasing some of the works in a larger format as posters.

Over the last decade, 1710 pieces of the world’s best lettering, calligraphy, and type design have been featured in the books, so narrowing it down to 36 for the exhibition proved no easy task.

Ultimately, it wasn’t about the work because all of them are stunning; it was about featuring some of the artists who have played an integral role in the book series, including many who have appeared in all nine editions.

5000

Maintaining a high calibre of work over a decade is a testament to these artists’ dedication. Typism is excited to showcase them in a larger format for a new audience.

One of the best things about the Typism Book project has been the opportunity for many first-time published artists to have their work showcased to a global audience. Over the years, many countries have been represented, including Ukraine, the Netherlands, Poland, Bolivia, Germany, Brazil, India, Indonesia, the Phillippines, France, Russia, Spain, Italy, the USA, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

Indeed, many of the 36 artists chosen to display their work in the exhibition come from countries other than Australia. So, if they cannot travel to attend the event in person, they have nominated a song to be played at the opening to represent them and their work instead.

Thirty-six works from Ten Years of Typism Books will be displayed in the retrospective poster show from 10–20 April 2024 as part of the ATypI Conference.

 

You are invited to celebrate with us at the official opening in Brisbane on Thursday, 18 April, from 6 pm onwards.

The exhibition will be hosted by Griffith University at the Grey Street Gallery—226 Grey St, South Brisbane.
