Matt had the ink and paintbrushes out this morning for a spot of custom lettering. Whether any of it will make it to print is yet to be seen but I thought I’d share a teeny snippet.
Always nice to get away from the Mac and draw something when you can.
Check out this fabulous post over on Typetoken showing a great bit of large-scale typesetting. The ‘Comedy Carpet’ was envisaged by artist Gordon Young in response to a commission from Blackpool Council. The typography was by Why Not Associates.
“Linotype: The Film” Official Trailer from Linotype: The Film on Vimeo.
John Boardley is a designer with a passion for typography – so much so, in fact, that he’s making a film about one particular iconic piece of typesetting equipment: the Linotype.
The trailer looks interesting and we’d love to see how this spins out to a full-length programme.
Just spotted this rather lovely looking project via @twitsplosion – sadly we were too late to get our hands on a physical copy of the first edition but, if you want to check it out, you can buy the PDF for the modest fee of £3
Reminds me a little of the Type Tarts project from the UKType site (our entry was Bellevue du jour, by the way!). You can buy the posters at Old Tom Foolery should you wish. I certainly do.
