Local Types launches at Tosh

Hugh gets to work on the installation
It's the launch weekend of the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival, and Thomas Tosh's wall has become a riot of local nicknames as part of the festivities.

Hugh Bryden has worked with local customers, and residents to turn nicknames into pictures in what he likes to call a `printstallation'. It's a unique project, combining humour with the growing interest in typography. It's well worth a visit. Entry is free.

And Hugh's work is not yet entirely complete. If you have any ideas of nicknames that you think should go up on the wall, he wants to hear.

Thanks to Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival for its collaboration, and to Margaret Marchbank, Jane, Mary, and Anne for the inspiration.
