Typeface notes. Or reflections. Or meh... whatever.

Typeface illustrates (tehe pun) the dying world of wood type and takes us through the Hamilton Museum of Type in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. In this documentary, we are taken through the museum and shown the ways that type traditionally applied to surfaces. The workers express their love for the character of wood type and also their disdain for it's fading.

Things felt during this video:

Beginning - What the shit is this?

Middle - Holy crap, this is really cool.

Middle end - Those old people are really adorable.

Still Middle end - How could people let this fade?! Wood type is awesome!

End - I'm making a pilgrimage to that museum
