Digital Type and Letterpress class in San Francisco California
- For those of you in the San Francisco Bay area, I will again be
teaching a class, in September, titled "Digital Type and Typography
for Letterpress". I discuss font formats and production, typographic
controls in Quark and InDesign, and look at fonts better suited for
letterpress (and compare text printed from hot metal type with their
digital versions printed from photopolymer plates). The San Francisco
Center for the Book web site has the details-
I can also send an information sheet in pdf form.
This is an intermediate level class, and while students should
have both page layout software and letterpress experience, I'm
particularly interested in reaching graphic designers to teach them
to better design for letterpress. I'd appreciate your passing this
note on to anyone you know who might be interested.
Thanks a lot.
