Hamilton Wayzgoose 2011


The third annual Wayzgoose at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum was fantastic. We printed our own posters with Brad Vetter and Jim Sherraden of Hatch Show Print, tried our hands at some calligraphy with Paul Shaw, cut our own letterforms for pressure printing with Juliet Shen and Carl Montford and bound our own portfolios with Kevin Steele. The typographer, Matthew Carter (creator of on-screen classics such as Verdana and Georgia) gave an excellent talk complete with actual slides. Judith Poirier of École de design UQAM in Montreal shared with us her incredible experimental films: she letterpress prints directly on 16 and 35 mm film stock to create animations.

We met some great people, had tons of fun, ate too many cheese curds, and came home with inky hands. Looking forward to doing it again next year, Two Rivers!

SWAG we get to make ourselves. I wanted one in every color.

  1. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
