Against Design: an Interview with Peter Rutledge Koch
Introduction: Russell Maret. Interview by: Monique Comacchio and Camden Richards. Against Design focuses on the typographic design and letter­press printing that has issued from the Koch studios for more than four decades. Graphic designers and educators Monique Comacchio and Camden Richards interview Koch about his printing practice and thoughts on typography and design. The result is an exploration of ideas related to material literacy and the art of printing as a philosophical practice. Against Design is generously illustrated with examples of Koch’s bibliophilic, typographic, and cowboy surrealist ephemera.
