Richard Kegler was inspired in part by the documentation of saw patterns on the backs of wood type done by David Shields for his research on American Wood Type manufacturing of the 19th Century, the undersides of all type high blocks are generally as printable as the faces. Combined with the discovery of misused broken wood type blocks, the imagery of manufacturing by products and neglect become something more formal and beautiful when locked up in a form. Add in the inspiration of flying cross-country on a clear day and staring out at the flat landscape, and this is how this series came to be.
