In-House Type Project

The In-House Type Project sprang from one of the many early-morning around-the-table discussions, this one about ways to participate in celebrating Poetry Month and it turned into: a randomly selected Typeface du Jour, using only sorts in the case -- no dingbats / cuts / ornaments -- as a means of exploring and educating ourselves about the in-house type, and the ways a particular type impacts and extends means of expression.

The pages were printed and bound by various past and present co-op members -- a group of printers and artists who use the shop regularly. The completed book is now available to purchase for $25. Perhaps you will pick one up next time you visit the printshop!
