I was recently invited to the BBC studios for a short chat with Nick Coffer about ‘fonts’ and he gave the book a good plug, click here to listen (I’m on at 1:37 after Elvis and it lasts for around 11 minutes).
We had letterpress prints by Typography Emporium guest Zoë Chan of Typelark in the Type Tasting studio at the weekend. Zoë prints on a vintage Adana letterpress and experiments with print techniques such as printing in reverse to create unusual textures.
Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th December

I am privileged to be a speaker at TEDxBedford on Saturday 15th November. The films of the talks will be available in a month, meanwhile here’s a glimpse of my experience from behind the scenes.
Great time had at the Mindshare Huddle today leading a workshop on sensory type with Monotype. The smell, taste and personality of typefaces were explored and debated.
Please get in touch with email@example.com if you are interested in a Type Tasting workshop.
TEDxBedford 2014 is taking place on the afternoon of the 15th November 2014 at The South Bank Arts Centre, Bedford College. A diverse range of speakers will join us to share their ‘ideas worth spreading’ relating to our theme ‘by Design’.
