Monotype and Secret 7" have joined forces to present a series of limited-edition typographic prints based on this year’s tracks, created by seven of the world’s top designers and typographers - including talented London letterpress duo The Counter Press (as featured in volume one of TypographJournal). Each track name is presented in each designer’s unique style.

Monotype produced 100 hand-numbered A2 prints per track, available to buy from the Secret 7" exhibition at Somerset House in London (and online here). Each print costs £50, with all money raised from the sale donated to this year’s chosen charity, Nordoff Robbins. All prints available at monotype.com/secret7

Old and new techniques collide in The Counter Press’s interpretation of The Maccabees’ atmospheric track, resulting in a deceptively simple letterpress design with depth in the detail. Using the physical record to form the ‘O’ in the track name, they set about finding a complementary typeface for the ‘G’, settling on the geometric curves of FF Super Grotesk®, laser cut to match in size perfectly.
