    This box of salvaged woodtype, originally part of some Adobe Studios (c. 1998) customer schwag, is now patiently awaiting to be repurposed as a new art project for our home.

      I have three dozen or so pieces of woodtype, ranging in size from 96pt up to several hundred points. I’ve kept a few choice glyphs out of this pile simply because they’re so beautiful to look at on their own. The rest of the blocks will be used in a series of four compositions to be contained in shadowbox-style frames. I’ll make sure to document that process as well.

      Indubitably.

      This looks fantastic. Ever been to the Hamilton Wood Type museum? I'm planning a visit in the fall.

      Never been, but it’s on my lifelist™ with a bullet. Speaking of Hamilton, have you checked out Kartemquin Film’s documentary Typeface? It’s screening during TypeCon in Atlanta next week.

      Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out. I'm just getting into the world of letters as a hobby interest. I'm a total noob. I live in Atlanta now but I'm moving to Milwaukee in a few weeks. A friend and I plan on checking out the Hamilton museum soon. Photos on Flickr, no doubt.
