Typotecture.

typotecture1I have wondered for a long while about what to call these architectonic constructions made up from letterpress type elements, and have asked quite a few people if they knew a name for it.
To date, the only solid response was from fine letterpress printer John Kristensen of the Firefly Press in Boston, who refers to them as “typotecture”.
Seems like a perfect appellation to me . . .
