the Blog: about & index

the Blog



muses on typography and graphic design, with a focus on printing and book design. It’s a visual diary of what I encounter: ranging from house numbers, vernacular type, and lettering to vieux papier & more. The stuff on this blog has somehow caught my interest, not paying too much attention to what is hot today: there are many fine blogs that keep you tuned to that.

A lot of what I show has to do with what printed matter looked like when I was a young boy. Type and imagery that formed my taste and eye before I was consciously dealing with visual language. Two-color printing, manual color separation, print that reveals its making process. — Enjoy!
