My first meeting with Brian was during the 1960s, when as art director of Woman’s Mirror, I commissioned him to illustrate a ten-part serial for the magazine. During the past year we have renewed our acquaintanceship becoming friends, and realizing that we have much history in common.
An interesting series of tutorials and articles over at the FontShop Blog.
The new series is called Using Type, and it’s a return to the basics. How to use grids and figures and hyphenation and titles and so forth will be the topic at hand, and what I hope to accomplish with it is the creation of a space where all of us can learn something, and contribute something.
