About Black Country Type

Black Country Type is an ongoing photography project by artist Tom Hicks. In this series of images he applies his unique aesthetic to the region, focusing on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and the post-industrial landscape of the Black Country.

His photobook I.D.S.T was published by The Modernist in 2020

Wolverhampton School of Art

Located in an iconic brutalist building, it is a rare example of 20th Century purpose-built art school. The event will begin and end at the School and will include a tour of its interior.
