Peckham Alphabet

These striking letters make up a large typographic artwork produced in celebration of Peckham, an area of Southeast London. The linocut alphabet has been created by Menna Jenkins, a graduate of Camberwell College of Art’s Printmaking MA.

The reduction linocuts1 were hand-printed with oil–based inks, using a platen press. Only a limited edition of 10 of each letter were made.

The urban landscape and typography of Peckham (which has been undergoing a slow regeneration since the 1990s) provides an unusual source of inspiration for the letters which reference the people, cultures, and architecture of the area, mixed with a warm sense of humor.

The signage of Peckham is not subtle, and nor are my letters.  I have used celebratory carnival colours and patterns, which include the familiar reds and yellow of burger and fried chicken shops.”

Menna has produced some follow-on prints from her alphabet, including ‘You is well fit’ which won a graduate prize and has subsequently been accepted into the V&A permanent print collection. 

The alphabet is available to any Peckham business that would like to use the typeface as signage.

1. Essentially, using the same piece of linoleum and progressively cutting more of the design away before each printing
