Andrew Restall

[Great Britain] (b 1931)

"Andrew Restall was born in Scotland in 1931, the son of a professional typographer. He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1954, where he later established the new School of Visual Communications. In 1965 he was seconded to the Royal College of Art as Research Fellow in Stamp Design and alongside teaching, Restall worked from 1964 for the Post Office designing stamps and related philatelic material. (..) This took him into a different world, building on an existing interest in typography and printing processes. (..) In 1975 he became Head of Visual Communication at University of Brighton. Since retiring as Head of the School of Visual Communication at Edinburgh College of Art, he has concentrated on painting and printmaking techniques including collagraphy; observing the changing landscapes around him in the Scottish Borders where he lives.
