Innovative Forms – the lettering of John Skelton



This catalogue contains a short biography by Jonathan Skelton, as well as essays by Ewan Clayton, Tom Perkins, Paul Wehrle, Sarah More and Tom Seargeant. There is also a description by Helen Mary Skelton of what it was like to work in the workshop in the 1970s. It is a wealth of inspiration and insight for other letter carvers, sculptors and all those interested in lettering!


The catalogue will be available to purchase in the Lettering Arts Centre shop during the exhibition.


The catalogue has been compiled and published by SW Publications.
