This typeface design was inspired by the history of Camberwell Fair. The letter forms were developed from a fair catalog publication from the year 1907, which depicted a similar style typeface on the cover. The archaic nature of the context the letters were found in informed the process of production, being laser cut and hand built letter blocks. This collection of books and prints portrays the experimental outcomes using the letter blocks on an original letter press.
