Will Carter - Man of Letters

Mon 24 October - Wed 14 December

Magdalene College, The Robert Cripps Gallery

Honorary Fellow of Magdalene College, Will Carter OBE (1977), was a master craftsman - printer, typographer, calligrapher, carver of wood and slate - for whom good design was “a matter of seeing the simplest way of doing something, which is usually the best”.

He is regarded as amongst the finest lettering artists of his generation and the post-war era.

His fascination with the letter form is evidenced in his skill as a calligrapher, compositor-printer, lettering artist, typeface designer, and letter carver.

The Exhibition shows examples of Carter’s skill as a printer, typographer and font designer; hand-cut letters rendered in stone and wood; book jacket designer; and the well-worn tools he used to create signs, plaques and more personal artefacts.
