Ligatures Film Screening of Making Faces

With the success of the Linotype Film screening we've decided to keep with the hot metal type theme. We will be assembling at Coach House Books for the free screening of Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century by Richard Kegler on Wednesday, April 9th. The documentary follows the creation of the typeface Stern, designed and cut by Canadian designer Jim Rimmer (1931 — 2010). The typeface was commissioned by P22 Type Foundry to be the first-ever digital font and an hand-set metal type release. Kevin King will have an actual case of Stern type for us to see firsthand!

Join us for this FREE screening as Jim walks us through the long lost process of cutting and casting type in metal! Space is limited, please sign up early.



We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to to P22 Type Foundry for helping us secure the rights for a public showing!
