Church of Type, Kevin Bradley’s Santa Monica, CA art and design studio, works “exclusively in the sweet science of authentic handset letterpress…and houses one of the most extensive wood and metal type collections in use today.”
The church recently opened its doors in our neighborhood and immediately drew me in. Sure, there are thousands of great independent letterpress studios around the country, but what sets Church of Type apart is how Kevin wields his antique industrial machinery like a paintbrush, creating rich, vibrant, soulful, and often wild pieces of art that elevate his studio and craft to a more creative and enlightened plane.If you worship type and are a true believer that art can come in any form, this is the church for you. Can I get an Amen?!
