    Amy Redmond and Jenny Wilkson (The Tiny Typecast)

    In this installment of the Tiny Type Cast, I speak with artists, designers, and educators Amy Redmond and Jenny Wilkson, who work primarily in letterpress. Jenny founded the letterpress program at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, Washington, and Amy studied typecasting, typesetting, and letterpress printing in an apprenticeship with Chris Stern and Jules Faye.

    The vibrant local community of printers keep traditions alive while also stoking the fires of a new generation and trying new kinds of printing, mixing different techniques onto the press, and new methods of making material for press, like laser cutters.

    Keith Houston on His Book, The Book (The Tiny Typecast)

    Keith Houston talks about the past and present of the book, which has remained a remarkably consistent form since its invention millennia ago. We talk about bookiness, elements of a book, ebooks, and emoji, among other topics.

    Keith is the author of Shady Characters and The Book, and maintains an active blog at which he posts ongoing articles on his current subject of interest. Right now, that’s been a long-running series on emoji that’s great reading, like all of his work.
