Rotherham Type Tour

Welcome to Type Tours. We're usually pretty busy and don’t manage to get out of the studio much but when we do we always find time to hunt down a bit of local typography.

What better way to kick off this irregular feature than to do our first tour in Rotherham.

Last day today
