New Vintage Type


During my sophomore year of college, Steven Heller spoke at UD. He toured the Raven Press (letterpress studio), saw a poster I'd designed with a friend, and asked if he could use it in his new book about old typography.

We were told the title of the book would be called Old Type/New Type.

A few years passed, and every once in a while I'd look for it, but I started to think maybe it never got published.

I was wrong! They just changed the title. It's called New Vintage Type.

You'd think I would've figured that out by now on my own, but I had some help...

Last week, my friend was flipping through a typography book at work, when he noticed the poster and my name in the credits (along with Courtney Bowditch & Ray Nichols—we collaborated). What a nice surprise.

Neato.
