Memorial plaque for Matt on Los Alamos

Memorial plaque for Matt on Los Alamos

back in the metal, setting the well I don’t know if colophon is the right word here, so the explanatory text for the back of the cards, to let people know a little more about Matt and that the proceeds are going to the scholarship fund and so a block of text haven’t done that in a while. and so last week there I was and there wasn’t enough of 12 point Garamond and so maybe 14 would be better and then not enough of that either OK all caps and work around for lack of ds and it wasn’t feeling quite right but you know how it goes sometimes you get started on something and just feel like you have to keep going and get it get something at least done and good enough good enough then oh at the end of the night it’s gonna be snug fitting on the page and I wanted to do a bit more too so well next week figure it out

not so much

what Tami was printing last week while I was setting type

and… what Tami was printing last week while I was setting type

and after a week of sitting with it and the new year and looking at the whole stack of cards and no, it isn’t right, and I’m just not going to be happy with it. and not so happy about having to distribute that type and start over again but sometimes that’s how it goes just good enough isn’t. want it to be. just. right. so there all the Garamond goes back and actually the distributing helps refresh the memory of where the letters are so the setting goes a little quicker this time with the Baskerville and I get the verbage a little better too I think and OK maybe it’s still going to pretty much fill up the page but it’s feeling better. not quite Right yet, but closer. although I haven’t printed it so who knows maybe it won’t be at all but it seems like a good way to start the new year.

sometimes you have to start over
