A Two Pipe Problem is a one-man letterpress studio run by the artist Stephen Kenny. He considers his printing presses to be artistic tools, working with fonts dating back to 1836, incorporating the wear and imperfections of the letters into the aesthetic of the work. He uses evocative, open-ended texts that he either finds or creates himself. Sources for example include newspaper articles, such as 'Actress Shoots Andy Warhol'. The mood of the typeface is matched to the emotion of the words he has selected.
