In 1944, American Type Founders (ATF) introduced Alpha-Blox, an impressive system of both solid and linear shapes that could be combined to create all manner of typefaces, ornament and pattern in 1- or 2-colors. Chris recreated and re-envisioned the font in large wood block form and by printing on his Vandercook 232P, with the assistance of Max Collins wheat pasting, has created billboards as large as 14’ x 20’.
