The Acadia University Art Gallery presents Andrew Steeves' "WOOD TYPE".
This exhibition features a selection of wood type prints created by typographer Andrew Steeves for the artist book Literatum Ex Arboribus: An Exuberant Showing of the Wood Type at Gaspereau Press. The prints are a whimsical celebration of wood type’s enduring potency as a tool for communicating human experiences through graphic means. This show was organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery
A special limited-edition gallery brochure has been created for this project by Steeves, including a free wood type, hand-printed poster: “all good things are wild and free” (Henry D. Thoreau).
