A rather special paper delivery…

With thanks to Mark and Ian at GFSmith, we’ve taken delivery of a mountain of Colorplan paper and card stock. After much deliberation, we selected a fresh palette of Pristine White, Real Grey, Turquoise, Park Green, Factory Yellow and Dark Grey sheets with the majority of pages and covers to be printed onto Colorplan Mist.

Colorplan papers.

A portfolio of experimental wood type designs.

The book will be letterpress printed on Victorian printing machines and will feature over 200 individual wood type faces from the private collection of Justin Knopp, founder of  Typoretum. The estimated publication date is Spring 2014 – regular updates will be posted here and you may also wish to sign up to our mailing list for more information.
