Ahhh, the weather in Boston is finally warming up, and I’m starting to think about my summer plans. What I’m most excited about is spending 5 days and nights on an idyllic island off the coast of British Columbia, getting some color into my pale New England skin. Whether it’s from swimming, hiking, or just relaxing in the Cascadian sun. And most importantly, talking and making type with other font fanatics. You can come too; I’m not just randomly bragging.
I’ll be co-instructing at Type Camp Galiano this year, and I can barely wait. Not just for the tan, but I can only imagine what designs are inspired by the natural setting on the other side of the continent (from where I call home). The projects are going to be amazing. There’s not much else I can say about it that isn’t already said on the website, so check it out and sign up.

I can also barely wait for our release of Benton Modern Display, which I worked on with Richard Lipton, coming out very soon (in a week or two). If you have gotten your hands on our new One-Line Type Specimen book, you can see it in all its printed glory. The Light is almost too light. I love it. I think you will too. Go to our home page and order a free one for PDF download or request that we ship one to you.
