C.C. Stern Type Foundry, Portland, OR

My son, a recent transplant to Portland OR, alerted his type-geek dad to the http://C.C. Stern Type Foundry, a volunteer-run working museum, offering public programs to preserve the craft of type casting, and to educate and inspire a new generation of printers and students of printing history.

Here are some photos he took at their open house on March 26, 2011:

Portland Type Tuesday continues!

Tuesday Feb 1st is the first Tuesday of the month, so it's time for a social evening with your fellow Portland typophiles! Not all discussions have to be about fonts and typography, but it would be good if everyone was at least willing to have such discussions. :)

This is our third Portland Type Tuesday, I think. We may soon be too many for this location, but they have a great Imperial Stout on tap, so we're back again at:

Migration Brewing
2828 NE Glisan St.
Portland OR 97232

7 pm Tuesday.

I'll be the fellow with the green hat and red mad scientist glasses. Hope we see you there!
