In 2019 I decided to participate in the 36 Days of Type challenge and therefore created a series of small linocut prints. For a period of 26 days (only A-Z excluding the numbers) I created a linocut print daily. Each letter was printed in an edition of 15.
About the Challenge:
36 Days of Type is an annual challenge organized by @36daysoftype. The project invites designers and illustrators around the globe to show their interpretation of the letterforms (A-Z) and numbers (0-9) of our alphabet. The challenge follows a strict calendar and each participant shares their daily submissions on social media (Instagram) with the official hashtags.
Linocut is a printmaking technique, similar to a woodcut, where the design is carved into a sheet of linoleum. The linoleum sheet is then inked and impressed onto paper.
