Lloyd Schermer

Lloyd started his career in newspaper publishing and so he spent the majority of his time surrounded by block type. Wood metal or otherwise, he always thought it had a peculiar beauty so when he left the business he hung on to a larger personal collection of the stuff as well as picking up any and all type he could find. Eventually he got the idea to put these large block letters together in artful compositions and hang them on the wall. His idea caught the eye of galleries and collectors and so here he is today. With work in the Smithsonian, The Newseum and many publishers boardrooms. It's pretty awesome looking work.
