Screening  |  Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century

Sunday, March 2, 2014, 1:30–4 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

The Burchfield Penney is pleased to welcome Richard Kegler for a discussion / demonstration and screening of Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century (A documentary).

This fascinating design documentary captures the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010).

In 2008, P22 type foundry commissioned Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font. Rimmer was one of only a few who possessed the skills needed to create a metal font.

This film is a unique opportunity to share Jim's knowledge, processes and passions with the world.

This screening is free with gallery admission.
