Jim Rimmer

Indices : Designers : Jim Rimmer

Canadian type designer, Jim Rimmer, is a rare typographic craftsman who is fully at ease cutting metal typefaces by hand and working the same designs with Bezier Curves on a Macintosh computer. Jim has designed typefaces for his own books that he designs, illustrates, prints and occasionally writes himself. His output approaches Frederic Goudy's in volume and quality.
Mr.Rimmer has digitized several Goudy faces for Lanston and continues to assist in the evolution of Lanston Type Co. In January of 2006, Mr. Rimmer's designs were released through P22 under the name of the Rimmer Type Foundry.
