Making Faces: DVD deluxe version now available!

Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century is now available in a deluxe package with subtitles and other bonus features. This fascinating design documentary was released to critical acclaim and has been received enthusiastically by the type and design communities and casual audiences alike. The film captures the personality of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010) and follows his hands-on method of creating typefaces from the preliminary sketches through the cutting and casting of a single letter. The design featured in the film would become the basis for the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font!

The Region Free Standard DVD Package includes:

  • 45 minute documentary
  • in depth bonus features on the type making process
  • newly digitized rare silent film from the 1930s: 'The Creation of a Printing Type from the Design to The Print by Frederic W. Goudy'
