Lettering & Type
While life in Paris is great, there are days where I could use a good dose of Baltimore. Today is one of those days I wish someone had invented a button that could transport me there in a matter of seconds. Last year I remember hearing tales of Bruce Willen and Nolen Strals of PostTypography being hard at work on their first book. I can’t think of anyone more perfect to write a book called Lettering & Type (check out their work if you don’t believe me). Tonight all their hard work pays off with the official launch party at MICA. But the best part is that 26 artists and designers will be presenting their favorite alphabetic letter or typographic character. I can only imagine what Baltimore will come up with!Click here for a peek inside the pages of Lettering & Type: Creating Letters & Designing Typefaces. You can pick up your very own copy right here.
Congrats Bruce and Nolen!
P.S. for those of you in NYC, the NYC launch happens Nov 17th at The Cooper Union.
P.S.S. on a separate note, in no other city can pink flamingos make the news like they can in Baltimore!
