Dutch Type Days
Learn about typographic history and praxis, examining the wealth of a working archive
In 2019 I shared my typographic archive in 2 one-day seminars, giving a small group of type and lettering enthusiasts the occasion to pore over original printed matter and tools they might not know, and listen to my stories and speculative theories. The participants could examine remarkable books from the 17th through 20th centuries, type specimens and classic magazines, and all kinds of vintage ephemera.I gave two full-day seminars. Various complications, and finally the COVID-19 pandemic, stymied any new edition of this workshop. If things turn to "normal”, which they probably won't for all of us, I may take it up again. Or sell my paper treasures to pay the rent. Such is life, and it's getting sucher and sucher.
