No Show Space presents Imposed Alphabet, an installation, portfolio edition and digital typeface by Fraser Muggeridge studio.

Imposed Alphabet consists of letters concealed on imposed printing sheets from various jobs designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio from 2018 to 2023. The shape, size, colour, and material of each letter refer to the design of the sheet that hosts it. Imposition is the process of arranging pages onto a printer’s sheet for maximum efficiency. Correct imposition minimises printing time, simplifies binding, and, by maximising the number of pages per impression, reduces paper waste.

Imposed Alphabet is available in two portfolio editions.

Imposed Alphabet (Big)
Edition of 26, signed and numbered
26 printed untrimmed flat sheets in a portfolio
75 x 57 cm
£260

Imposed Alphabet (Small)
Edition of 52, signed and numbered
Trimmed individual letters (with 1 or 2 missing)
35.5 x 44.5 cm
£26

Fraser Muggeridge will give a talk and exhibition tour on Sat 21 Oct at 5pm. The event is free to attend and all are welcome.

Fraser Muggeridge studio is a graphic design company based in London. Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to posters, marketing material, exhibitions, websites, film titles and music, the studio prioritises artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with typographic form and letterform playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object.


Exhibition open Wed-Sat, 12-6pm and by appointment.
