Portion of title Metal type in the 21st century
Abstract This fascinating design documentary captures the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). In 2008, the P22 Type Foundry commissioned Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font. Rimmer was one of the few who possessed the skills needed to create a metal font and fully execute all steps of its design. This film is a unique opportunity to share Jim's knowledge and processes with the world.
