Legacy of Letters 2023—Glossary (English / Italian Typographic and Printing Terms)

The principal project of the letterpress workshop led by Peter Kruty and Sayre Gaydos of Peter Kruty Editions at the Tipoteca was the design, setting, and printing of an English/Italian glossary of printing and type terms. The participants were divided into five teams of two to work on the list of words and to design divider pages for each category: Chiara Bergese and Kelci Baughman McDowell (typesetting / type styles), Susan Fitzgerald and Fred Wiltshire (design / parts of letters), Stefano Baldassari and Jen Thomas (printing / paper / book), Eran Ben Barak and Shaqa Bovand (character set /decoration), and Jacob Ford and Hofi Benediktsdóttir (typography / parts of metal type). The glossary pages were designed and typeset jointly while the divider pages were sometimes designed and typeset individually. I designed the cover and, with Sayre Gaydos, the title page. Sayre did the colophon. Leonardo Facchin and Lucio Botteselle helped with the typographic fine-tuning and lock-up of all three pages.
