An ampersand of type

Open Studios Ampersand 01 Open Studios Ampersand 02


New for Open Studios this coming weekend in the Type Tasting studio

The recent exploration of ampersands will be added to the treasure trove of typography on show this coming weekend. The Type Tasting studio will be full of ephemera and prints (we’re having a clearance sale on screen prints). Enter the Type Tasting Lab where you can don a lab coat and font goggles to take part in games and experiments.

“Walking into the Type Tasting studio was like walking into a mad scientist’s lab.” Robert Boick.
