Hamilton will cut the Spiekermann-designed font HARD. The design of Spiekermann's font saves time compared with other wood-cut type as it does not include sharp angles that would normally necessitate extra trimming.
Working with retired Hamilton type-cutter, Norbert Brylski, and his daughter Georgianne, Hamilton will be demonstrating the 150-year-old process at its annual conference.
"I'm excited to see Hamilton cut this font using traditional methods," Spiekermann commented. "With Hamilton's vintage pantographs and former type-cutting employees, this will be a chance to see history in the remaking."
