London-based illustrator, typographer and graphic designer Fiftyseven, aka Steve Mitchell, launches his new print exhibition at The Book Club on February 10, which has been curated and directed by Liat Chen.
After developing an obsession with nineteenth century typography, Steve strived to push the aesthetic into a new, eye-catching and absurd style - Neo-Victorian Maximalism.
