Maybe I’m projecting, but Nukta seems to be into type books. She’s been staring at this spread for several minutes now.

Slowly cataloging our library
17 August, 2017

Over the last couple months we’ve been slowly…

Over the last couple months we’ve been slowly cataloging all our type books with Bookpedia. So far we are very happy with he app and would recommend it. But cataloging takes so much time… So far we ‘only’ have 231 books entered, which is almost half of the main typographic reference section. There are still specimens, periodicals, and other misc books to go. It’s slightly depressing to see them all fitting on one screen, because it belittles the actual mass. In real life these books take up two long shelves — about 16 feet long.

Faenza Ceramics Museum
6 August, 2017

Besides type, ceramics is another major personal interests. On my second trip to Faenza I had the pleasure of visiting this substantial ceramics museum. Since this site is dedicated to type, I’m only sharing the few relevant images that overlap with this core focus. But I should mention that these few excerpts weren’t actually the major highlights of the museum… never-the-less, these typographic specimens are still pretty nice.

Meet Nukta, the latest addition to our family…

Meet Nukta, the latest addition to our family and team. She was born outside our building about 7 weeks ago and has been inside with us for the last two weeks. So far her hobbies include acrobatic jumping, biting her own tail, sitting on my shoulder while I work, and waking us up every hour throughout the night. Her and our other cat Cosette get along well 😺

Kerning Conference 2017
7 July, 2017

I had the fortune to attend my second Kerning conference last month. On both occasions I had a lovely time in the tiny village of Faenza alternating sips of espresso and wine while hanging out with some of the best people in type. Even though the conference itself is quite small (one day of talks, maybe roughly 200 attendees), there are two bonus days of workshops, and a few days before and after the conference to extend the experience. We happened to be there for 4 days and enjoyed every minute. It’s a testament to the IRL fun we had seeing as how I took hardly any photos. There were so many lunches, dinners, aperitivos, late night bars, etc. and I didn’t take a single photo. Nor did I take any inside the conference other than during the talks. It’s sad for showing off here, or for digital memories, but it was a great time.

Shoutouts to Antonio Cavedoni, Dan Rhatigan & Dan Reynolds who gave my three favorite presentations.

We’ve been proud to always include the German ẞ in our fonts. It’s exciting that it’s now an officially recognized letter! We are hopeful that more designers will make it a part of their standard character sets.
