A Tribe Called Quest

This piece was created for ‘For The Love of New York‘, an exhibition at the Bottleneck Gallery, Brooklyn, New York.

The type is an extract from ‘Check the Rhime’, an early 90s hip hop tune from A Tribe Called Quest – my first introduction to New York culture as a teenager.

Hand Set in 14 line grotesque wood type and 14 point Monotype Univers 685. Designed and letterpress printed by Jamie Murphy on an Adwest double crown proofing press at Distillers Press.
