Nice work, everyone. And thank you to Benjamin Shaykin and Julie Fry for being guest critics.
A friend of mine put me onto this site, lots of good images, a little awkwardly designed, but so remarkably similar to our project I had to share:
October (Summer 1979), 9: 50-64.
Post from MVA about their typographic foundations course. Captures the spirit of Oct. 31 class and Nov. 7 class (if not the rest of life)
A website that lets you kern onscreen. The instructions on the site are as follows: “Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters. Typographers call this activity kerning. Your solution will be compared to typographer’s solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it. Good luck!”
Thank you, Colin for a great letterpress workshop.
Visit to the D.B. Updike Collection with Special Collections librarian Jordan Goffin to look and touch historical typographic artifacts.
