The printing press is considered the greatest invention in humanity’s history. This man is a master of it. That alone would be amazing, but it should also be noted that this invention is over 500 years old. It is this antiqued method that Kevin Bradley has chosen as his medium for artistic expression. He calls himself “The Van Gogh of this shit”. I call him the Pope of the Church of Type.
If you have no idea what the printing press is, well you should check out my interview with Mark Barbour, the Curator and Executive director of The International Printing Museum.
