Annual Keepsake Series

Robert Bringhurst and Peter Rutledge Koch, Editors, 2015

The Book Club of California’s 2015 Annual Keepsake updates the Club’s enduring interest in type design by celebrating the contributions of six important designers who have lived and worked in California and made lasting contributions to digital typography. Composed of twelve folded sheets (plus a thirteenth for the forward by Robert Bringhurst), the keepsake features stunning type specimens, statements by the type founders, and brief biographies for each designer: including Robert Slimbach, Carol Twombly, Sumner Stone, Zuzana Ličko, and David Siegel. The sheets and cover were designed and set in type by Robert Bringhurst, and the keepsake was printed by Peter Koch Printers using a Heidelberg cylinder press.

8 x 10″. Thirteen folded pages.
