Dinner with Alejandro Paul

Stephen Coles's picture

Greetings Bay Area type friends.

It's been a while since this group gathered in earnest. Let's fix it. No time better than Saturday, May 20. Why? Because type designer Alejandro Paul will grace our city this weekend - all the way from Argentina. Let's get together and show him a good time north of the border(s).

For those unfamiliar with Alejandro's work, have a look at Sudtipos and Veer. Ale is a new master of the script font, with hundreds of releases over the last few years, and a lovely jovial fellow to boot.

So? How was it? Was the conversation stimulating? Were ligatures discussed and appreciated all around? Did everyone behave? Do tell, do tell.

ahhh, well, dinally I m back. SF days were very nice. Beautiful city.

About the dinner, I m very happy to meet some type folks there. They were very friendly and they choose a really nice (neo-mexican?) restaurant. The guacamole was terrific.

About the ligatures I showed them some projects and it was nice to see what they liked more so I ll work with more energy on that. The guys there received a few nice newspapers published during the Letras Latinas exhibition featuring the 70 works selected. So, if you were outisde SF that day, then you missed that :P

And they were trying to convince me to go to Typecon, hmmm...who knows
