These Northern Types is an exploration of contemporary northern identity by design studio Split. Through an exhibition and book of 16 works, the project asks what it means to be from the north – or indeed any place – in today’s globalised world.
As part of the exhibition the incredible People Powered Press, thought to be the biggest of its kind in the world, was on show at Sunny Bank Mills.
I had the pleasure of using the press at a letter press workshop, it was a sight to behold.
Congratulations to Split who recently won a D&AD and a Guinness world record for their efforts.
