We miss you on a normal basis, but with all this social distancing we really want to see your smiling faces. So, please plan to join us for a Zoom call (or two or three) so we can chat for a bit. We are asking some of our friends from the print, design, and type worlds to be our guest and co-host for each zoom call. So we can see what they are up to and find out how you're doing.
Attendees: You. Open to the first 100 friends that join us.
Topic: What are our guest co-hosts doing? What are you up to? What are you making?
Duration: About an hour-ish.
Note: Meeting recorded and distributed for posterity's sake. ⠀

Letterform Archive is a nonprofit center for inspiration, education, publishing, and community. The Archive was founded by Rob Saunders, a collector of the letter arts for over 40 years, as a place to share his private collection with the public.

Tom Walker has been a professional designer for over 25 years. He has also taught at the university level for a decade. Printing has alway been a part of that professional practice and teaching. Walker is now doing more personal artistic and job printing after assembling a modest personal collection of type and a few presses over the last several years. Recent print work and workshops have explored themes of ornament and pattern. Through a life in design he's also been intrigued by the technical aspects of printing, the engraved image, stamps and currency.
