Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand

Ouch October!

October has been a huge month in the world of type with lots of new releases and resources announced - I have a curated selection of some of the best and brightest for you below. It is a huge list of TypoMusings for you to explore and I haven't been able to showcase even half what I had hoped to (as I had a fall last week that has me off my feet).

One of the (many) downsides to being laid up is I won't be able to attend the Disrupt launch event tonight... Those of you in Brisbane (and able to walk!) should head along to Jugglers in the Valley for the launch. There are excellent printmakers, zine publishers and artists exhibiting. The above print entitled 'Type by hand, hand by type' is one of the pieces I have been working on this month and is on display at disrupt for the next 2 weeks.

Take care, enjoy, stay curious and talk soon!
