Creative Update 7

For this creative update, we’re going back to our roots and talk about typography and type history. The first is a former factory, now a museum for woodtype. Amazing stuff:

One of the customers of the above museum is the Hatch Show print shop. Amazing, iconic work, particularly the Johnny Cash poster:

On the local front, there’s a print museum that has great equipment from replica Gutenberg press to working Linotypes. I loved to see things in action there. If you’re into printing at all, this is a great and easy weekend outing:

On the blog front, these two have consistently been interesting. House is a very interesting company that has done really great collaboration including Hermes, Neutra, Eames, Herman Miller, etc. An impressive list.

If you happen to be in NYC, this looks to be an amazing show with an even better catalogue. More here:
