Into my fourth week of this course and I absolutely love it. Designing, arranging and setting type has such an immediate connection with the words. Having handled books and print all my life and having written quite a bit, for me,  the processes of typesetting and printing now seem to bridge the gap – and uncover the mysteries.
In the language of galley proofs, upper and lower cases, terms such as “out of sorts” reveal a satisfying richness. Bradford College has one of the few remaining printmaking studios where this type of activity can be pursued. Looking forward to next Wednesday evening’s class.
