Typesetting CSS

New document I have made available online which examines the connection between typesetting and modern day CSSing (of body type, nothing to do with web type).

De Stijl Customization Question

I am working on a a but of customization Doesberg and Kegler's De Stij — mainly on upper case K and V.

I am fairly happy with the V (80% there) but having a bit of a harder time with the K — partly to do with the fact that's it's followed by an E.

Any thoughts or comments?

Short Run Letterpress

Is it possible(and feasible) to have a short run of letterpress job without it costing an arm and a leg? I am looking to get my portfolio printed, with double processing and would really love to get crisp results on the text.

I am working on a cover work for a release titled ; Jammic n Flip - In My Mind

I have been going through my suitcase and came across this Russian font which coincidently matched this as Jammic is half Russian half Korean.

was wondring if there are any Russian speaking typophile memebrs who can tell me if the image included make any sense? if not why? and perhaps a recommendation for a alt Russian font.

I am making my first steps into poster printing for a project i am doing for my record label.

I find it surprisingly difficult to find a run down of printing techniques online...

any help on the best possible way to print a few hundreds of A2(roughly - that could change) sized poster ?

the actual poster would be a full color image with blocks of type.
