We still have a few spots left for Bay Area typographers who might be interested in visiting Arion Press and the Mackenzie & Harris Typefoundry in San Francisco this coming Thursday, February 16. Take a look at the postcard [PDF], and let me know if you’d like to come. Most of the spots for this afternoon tour are already reserved by the group of students coming down from Sacramento with Sacramento Art Directors and Artists Club President steve mehallo.
Update: Photos from the event are up, as is a very short and noisy video.
