Hidden Treasures: the LOST BAUHAUS TYPEFACES

If you do not hear about this project, I invite you to read al the story here. While in Adobe Max last year, Erik Spiekermann presents a wood version of one of the Bauhaus typeface, with a workshop to print them! It was, of course, one of my favorite part of the Max 2018 market. You can find the fonts on Adobe font (which replaces Typekit by the way). Did you know that all the Adobe font are now included with your subscription? Pretty amazing.

It was a pleasure to meet Erik in person, and the next step would be to visit the p98a workshop. Discover it in this article.

For the love of (French) paper! 

Like past years, French papers did an amazing job with some free goodies for all attendees! Gold hot foil posters and Draplin postcards!

This year again I have the chance to be one of Adobe France Insider at the annual Adobe Max Event ! This year it was in Los Angeles!

The International Printing Museum

I will share my experience day by day. Adobe invites us a day before the event starts. On Sunday morning, the Los Angeles printing museum organize its annual printer fair! As my friend Mark E Sacket, from The Box SF was there to sell his Ephemera collection, I jump in an Uber and was there right in time to enjoy the smell of the ink and see amazing things.

The Los Angeles Art District

Some hours later, I was in the middle of the LA Art District with more than 90 other « influencers » for a visit! You imagine the contrast with my morning surrounded by wood type and printers!

The French type tour !

It is always a beautiful experience to visit a country or city with someone who lives it every day and who can share his version of the place. This is also the case in the other direction, to be the host and see this place where you have your habits and your routine suddenly become a magical place!
I met Mark E Sacket via Instagram, and through The Type Hunter, Keith Tatum who participated in the calendar this year. Mark shares on his account the hundreds (thousands) of photos from his ephemera collection: papers, advertising cards, packaging ... everything around type! Based in San Fransisco, he has just opened "The Box SF" to show (and sell) all these objects and this is just the beginning of a great project dedicated to the memory of our graphic culture. The following will be events, conferences, workshops ...

When Mark decided to come to Paris, it was for Bibliomania, a bi-annual ephemera market! The opportunity for me to go "to the big city" and spend 10 hours rummaging through boxes and boxes of travel labels, postcards or old books! We then took the opportunity to visit some timeless stores, the impression of being in the famous "Diagon Alley"!

A few days after our Parisian escapade, Mark comes to the south, to Arles where I installed Mr Cup Studio 2 years ago now. After digging into my collection, we took the road to Bordeaux, stopping us in Montpellier or Carcassone! We ended our trip in the company of Philippe, one of the authors of the works of Auguste Derrière, to drink wine while admiring his collection of old books of illustrations or the catalog of the world exhibition of 1889 by the fire and surrounded by happy cats!

I think to develop this idea of "French type tour" because it is always a beautiful moment of sharing in the "real life"! Who would be in? Contact me!
