New Type and a New Project


20131004-183224.jpgMy friend Matt Weaver sent me some lead type in the mail. Matt is a sculptor and is currently based out of Salt Lake City. I met him at the University of Kansas when we took a special studies in sculpture class called Monsters. It was a class that was almost entirely about casting and monsters was our starting concept. It was definitely one of my favorite classes. Here’s a review of one of his art shows while he was at KU.

It’s some very nice type. Two different typefaces, all 18pt: Parisian and a semi-condensed blocky gothic that I don’t know the name of.

My shipment of black 1 ply Rising Museum Board came in today. Just in time too, we had a bad thunderstorm about 30 mins after I got home. It’s for the Samuel Beckett quote prints. I need to cut the 28×40 sheets down to something my new Kutrimmer 1038 can handle (max cutting length 14.75″). Annie will be coming over tomorrow to help print. So much to look forward too :)
