Typographer Will Holder produces oral and printed publications with artists and musicians. He is preoccupied with conversation as dissonant model and tool for a shared set of publishing conditions—whereby the roles of commissioner, author, subject, editor, printer, reader and typographer are improvised and shared, as opposed to assigned and predetermined.
In 2015, aided by a Paul Hamlyn Award, Holder founded uh books, whose programme lies somewhere between the phonetic “uh”, and the graphic a, highlighting the role of the printed page in the oral, the conversational, the moving and the sonic; recording and scoring a shared value and meaning where no single author-genius might take charge of a conversation/production. uh books publishes F.R.DAVID – a typographic journal addressing the position of reading and writing in relation to artistic practise – through which they divert funds from publisher-distributors’ pockets back to supporting others’ work through forthcoming books (with Emmie McLuskey, Lucy Skaer, Cara Tolmie, Chris Evans).
