  • It may make negs that work, but I am not certain about rendering type 10 point or smaller with good enough resolution for a professional appearance.

  • Use a greenhouse plastic sheet from a garden shop, these are designed to pass UV wavelengths. Acrylic filters UV out and reflects it back to the light source. Put a black surface under the plate, I recommend a low durometer lightly textured black elastometer or a matte black opaque polycarbonate. Hard or soft is a personal choice. I prefer flexible to hard for the back and glass...

  • Quark Xpress is for typesetting professionals with greater flex ability and more formatting options. In Design comes close Quark Xpress but not quite, I am disappointed in it for value to cost. Plus the cloud problem. Corel Draw is another option, but it is a program priced and designed for novices, greatly lacking in ability and flexibility. I have all three, but only because my...

  • I did newspaper work in the 60's too. We used what was called "Hot Metal Paste-Up." We would make shell casts, .168" thick stereos, which we would cut the parts of the plates away that we needed for the customer's ads and cast Ludlow slugs of the copy that the customer wanted in his ad. We would cut the feet from the Ludlow face to get a .168" high piece of type. Where text was...

  • Well my computer goofed and used an older version of my file. The table remains pretty much as it was except the committee met Friday night and the faces without mark-ups were formally entered into the standard. Also the name of the standard was changed from FMU to CMU. It was FMU from 1953. The F stood for Formalized.) The text before the table reads: THE ART OF MARK-UP The...

  • I am going to teach a summer term this year, in an Introduction To Typography course that will be part of a high school graphic design curriculum. I am having some trouble with the section on mark-up. I need a better explanation of the process. Maybe I need to add some more fonts to the listed mark-ups. Any help or criticism will be welcome.

  • There was a yahoo group called typophiles anonymous, but; unfortunately it no longer exists. The fun of the group was that the poster decided what language he or she wished to post with. in a given day the posts would be a mix of French, German, Italian, Greek and sometime English. I usually posted in Swiss German. The group started in the days of E-Groups and members included...

  • I have spent four years locating as many fonts of Intertype Medieval and Vogue as I could along with their sorts, redrawing the glyphs and digitizing them into new fonts. I now have fifteen fonts in text suitable versions, (for up to 14 point,) and twenty- one fonts in display suitable versions, (14 point and larger.) The new fonts reproduce identically to their hot metal...
