Join us on Saturday for a special open house at the museum in tandem with TypeCon, the annual Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) conference. See the casters in action, as well as hand casting demonstrations. Volunteers will be on hand to give tours and talk about the art and industry of making metal type. Souvenir metal type, printed ephemera, DVDs and other printing related items will be available for sale. We will also be debuting an exhibit of Jim Rimmer’s limited edition book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, set in Hannibal Old Style, a typeface designed and cast by Rimmer. Additional materials and type from Jim Rimmer’s Pie Tree Press will be on display.
*Please note that the 3rd Saturday open hours on August 18th are cancelled.
