Title
Hiccups, Trip-ups & Total Disasters: Thoughts on Making Books
Summary
Type designer and printer Russell Maret discusses his new work entitled "Character Traits." The book consists of three parts: a bound essay with a section of notes on the plates, a portfolio of unbound plates, and a small volume of color studies cut in linoleum. The plates are short texts by various authors, set in alphabets that are either impossible to produce in metal type, or so impractical that they would never have been produced in metal. The purpose of these limitations is to explore digitally native letterforms free from the limitations of typographic technology.
