Thanks to everyone who came out to Type In The Open on Saturday evening. Over the course of the 5 hours I had about 30 people come through the door, and about half a dozen of those tried a hand at setting some type and printing on the Adana Eight Five. I got to show off the Golding Jobber No. 8 (its mechanical beauty was, by far and away, the highlight of the event), tell the story of how it came to me, and talk about type, printing and why I’m interested in it.
It was a diverse crowd, and people found there way there via a combination of Twitter, Facebook, and the posters I’d peppered around the downtown. Kenny and Winnie printed up a card for Tai Chi Gardens, I printed up a batch of Tourists Not Allowed In This Area posters, and there was a lot of interest in the collection of letterpress cuts loaned to me by Ian Scott.
