Posts under ‘Designer’s Tools’
Huge list of type specimen books, books about typography, printing and more, all from the late 19th to the early 20th century. I could spend days there.
I’m working on a new book. It’s called “Die Werkzeuge des Graphikers (vor Einführung der Computer)” / “The Designer’s Tools (before the introduction of computers)” and here’s a quick peek of some spreads. And like my Book about the Ratinger Hof it will be published by Robert Wiegner. Of course, it’s all in German again. Apologies.
Lots of free, professional 3D software for free on the DAZ homepage, apparently for a limited time only. Be aware though, if you’re running a Mac with OS X Lion installed, Bryce and Hexagon won’t work as far as I’m aware. But Studio with the included Genesis figure is incredible. Simply incredible.
Many tutorials can be found on YouTube.
In Deutschland war schon immer alles irgendwie Handy.
Looks as if my old Mac Performa 200 has finally died; there are only a few bars showing up on the screen and then nothing else happens, not even the “Sad Mac” icon. Most probably the motherboard ? The hard drive is still running fine. This is terrible.
And this is all Steve Jobs’s fault of course. Why can’t he built things that last longer than 20 years? I think he’s doing this on purpose. Tsk.
Anyway – I used to design books for Cambridge University Press on this machine. Language guides with loads of illustrations and complicated typography. And Mathematics books with many formulas. All done with Quark, version 3. And somehow it just worked.
I wonder if Apple still services those old machines? I’d really like to have it up and running again for some sort of sentimental reasons.
Copywriters in the sixties always worked by the light of a candle and with a fat cigar and a beer.
