Qwerty 3

writer Stephen Banham publisher Letterbox

Unintentionally anticipating the boom in urban stencilling by a decade or so, the third issue of Qwerty focussed on stamped and stencilled typography. All text and imagery for the issue was hand-stencilled, which in a pre-digital publication measuring only 74mm wide, is quite a physical feat. Qwerty 3 is testimony to the expressive beauty of these uniquely portable typographic forms.
