BOOK NO. 1 OF LEAD GRAFFITI'S AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL SERIES entitled Moments Carved in Paper details the international story of how Ray Nichols & Jill Cypher came to fall in love with printing slowly & patiently via letterpress. If you happen to be a librarian, designer, typographer, or you believe in love at first sight, this book is for you.
While our aha! moment was a single event in time; the journey involves a series of stepping-stone incidents that led Lead Graffiti to where we are today. Connect the dots as we go from a Visual Communications study abroad trip to London > a field trip to a British typographer in New York > to a teacher at the Royal College of Art > and to the librarian at London’s St. Bride Printing Library who sets off massive drooling, followed by the visual, cosmic fireworks that sparked a change of heart and career.
It's hard to believe that these antique alphabets initially caused us to react with disgust, then drooling, then visions of deep space.
