Anthony Burrill: Look & See

Collected Ephemera and Printed Material

Anthony Burrill


Master printmaker Anthony Burrill’s wonderful world of printed matter, presented through a personal selection of offbeat ephemera and typographic curiosities

See Inside


Look & See offers a very personal insight into the idiosyncratic influences and inspirations behind the creativity of Anthony Burrill, designer and letterpress guru. Selecting from his private collection of printed matter, lovingly gathered and curated throughout his career, this is a celebration of the pieces of paper that surround our everyday lives, offering a whimsical and, at times, almost philosophical perspective on how we view printed artefacts. Each piece is accompanied by an observation by Burrill that reveals his sensitive knowledge and understanding about design and its place it the real world. Complementing the printed works are sections of street photography Burrill has shot specially for the book and which give new meaning to the signs and words we take for granted. A treasury of visual inspiration, Look & See is a covetable printed curiosity in its own right.

Beautifully crafted into a whole much greater than the sum of its delightful parts, this is a publication that will entrance and inspire in equal measure.
