Reminiscing about wood type

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Back in November (yes, finally getting around to posting this!) Tom Rickner, Jim Ford and Terrance Weinzierl ascended upon the Hamilton Wood Type Museum for the first annual Way-z-goose. The weekend included extensive reviews of the museum's wood type holdings as well as demos of a printing press and a pantograph. Matthew Carter was on hand to introduce his wood-only typeface Carter Latin and sign prints of his fellow typographers.

Naturally, some delicious pizza and micro-brewed beer garnished the trip to frigid rural Wisconsin.

Special thanks to Jim Moran and the volunteers that made the event possible.
