Decorative Typesetting

The focus of this class is on complex typesetting.

Techniques covered will include:
-Inserting drop caps
-Pull quotes
-Oversize type and bleeds
-Combining different size type
-Color splitting and mixing on the press
-Constructing images from type elements

While all students will be working from the same set text, each participant will complete an individual edition of ten copies of the whole book.

Prior to the first meeting, you will be provided with the copy and a page breakdown of a short book consisting of an excerpt from a classic text.

In addition to the illustrations, students will fully design and set a colophon for their edition. This may be as brief or extensive as you wish.

*This workshop will take place on Sundays, June 23 & 30, 2019 from 9:30am-5:30pm.
