This is one of the works in the auction that I’m totally tempted to bid on. CBA Stein Scholarship Alum Katie Baldwin donated a Specimen of Bembo to the auction that satisfies BOTH my inner obsessive/compulsive, and my deep-seated love of all things typographic. Take a look:
How about we zoom in there?
Katie is the current Victor Hammer Fellow at Wells College, and part of that program ensures that she gets to work at The Bixler Press & Letterfoundry, with Michael & Winifred Bixler. She’s learned in the process of working there how to cast monotype, and this is where she cast the 16 point Bembo used for the project herself. She designed and set this glorious broadside in an edition of 25 last summer. This is just one of many projects that she has completed while in residence at Wells, and you can see photos, and learn more about her process on her blog, here, where she documents her work and her travels.
