Event Details

Type is nothing at all when it is not easy to read. In this session, we will explore the legibility and appropriate use of type found in the Book Arts Workshop.

Bring a short poem or quotation to be set and proofed in several different type faces after which we will compare and decide which faces are the most legible and appropriate for the piece. Those faces selected will be printed and assembled into a portfolio for each of the participants.

Previous experience in type setting or completion of a letterpress orientation class is required.

Instructor: Bob Metzler

It is open to all levels of experience; instruction on using the printing presses and in binding books is given. There is no fee to use the studios or to attend workshops but participants are expected to follow posted guidelines for cleaning up after themselves and putting away type.
