For those who delight in the printed letter, Homegrown Alphabets is an exhibition not to be missed. Juried by local artist and letterpress printer Eleanor Annand, the show promises to be a celebration of the ascenders, descenders and serifs that compose our written language. Artists across the country have submitted work that uses letterpress and printmaking processes to showcase the beauty and versatility of typography in the tradition of print graphics. The result is a clever and varied pool of work featuring original alphabets and fresh uses of existing type, from which Annand will curate the show. Visitors to Asheville BookWorks are invited to explore the studio and revel in the playful ingenuity of these typographical works of art.
