a christmas carol programme sneak peek

24.11.11

We’ve been busy working on the design of the programme for the National Theatre of Scotland’s forthcoming production of  ‘A Christmas Carol’. It’s currently with the printers. Here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes at the GSA’s letterpress studio.

The design is inspired by Victorian bill posters, newspapers and typographic ephemera. We enlisted the help of the GSA’s typography technician and artist in residence Edwin Pickstone. Edwin created a bespoke piece of set metal type that will feature on the finished programme.

You can get your hands on a copy of the finished programme by going along to ‘A Christmas Carol’ directed by Graham McLaren. The production is running at Film City in Govan from 30th November until 31st December.
