If you have any spare weekends left in May you could do worse than head to Ditchling, home of The Ditchling Museum of Art & Design where they are holding an event called The Village of Type. This series of exhibitions explores the typeface created by Edward Johnston for the London Underground. There's lots for all the family to do, from printing your own postcard or type poster to helping carve a giant piece of lino which will be printed with the help of a steam-roller at the Big Steam Print on Saturday 18th June, as part of Ditchling Fair.
As part of the exhibition Ditchling has been transformed by artist Gary Stranger (great name) who has sprayed arresting letters on houses scattered around the village. I love the E (for Emma). Type nerds shouldn't miss Interrobang, showcasing letterpress printing by artists from around the world, held at The Jointure Studios as part of the Artists Open Houses at weekends during May.
