Chromatic Wood Type

Hi,

we would like to introduce you Show, a multi-layered chromatic font family based on an old Victorian style wood type. http://show.juanjez.com/

Show designers Inés Atienza and Juanjo López are members of the Familia Plómez association, a small printshop based in Madrid that devote their efforts to promote everything about letterpress printing, calligraphy, and lettering. One of our favorite typefaces from our collection of wood types has been the basis for creating a new digital typeface.

This spring Type@Cooper's public workshops offerings have some new classes in Cooper Union's Letterpress studio.

Beginning February 3rd, Nick Sherman will teach a 5 week evening course

Students will look at historical examples, analyse forms, design a some letters, and print their designs from laser cut wood type on a Vandercook press. If you love type, color and printing this will be very fun.

Beginning March 17th, Sumner Stone will teach a 5 week evening course
