Typeface Documentary Screens at Museum
October 26, 2011
Making Faces, a film by Richard Kegler documenting the lost art of pantographic type making will be screened twice—at 7:00 and again at 9:00 pm, with a Q & A session with the filmmaker after each showing (doors open 30 minutes prior to each showing). The 45-minute film details the working process of the late Jim Rimmer as he designs and casts the font Stern, the only type font ever to have been released in both electronic and metal versions simultaneously. The font is a commemoration of the fine printer and type caster C. Christopher Stern, of Sedro-Woolley, Washington.
The showing is a fundraiser for the C.C. Stern Type Foundry, a non-profit working museum of type casting in Portland, Oregon.
Tickets are $8 at the door (cash or card only), first come first served. Doors at 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm, and admission includes one drink ticket. Snacks are complimentary.
Sponsored by Extensis, KeeganMeegan & Co., Peet Kegler Design and Premier Press.
