Jacques Haumont, typographe, imprimeur, éditeur The Ballet Font Project Lettering: A Reference Manual of Techniques by Andrew Haslam Lettering: A Reference Manual of Techniques by Andrew Haslam and published by Laurence King This newly published book (September 2011) is a comprehensive reference guide for any designer wanting to know more about the techniques and production processes to create lettering themselves or to commission work from external sources. Using a combination of explanatory text, step-by-step photographs and classic and contemporary examples, this unique survey brings together over 80 processes involved in creating lettering and applying it to many different surfaces. Included are hand-drawn lettering techniques (from sign writing to tattooing); dimensional lettering (hand engraving to laser cutting); typesetting (from letterpress to lettering in food); printing (Letraset to printing on bank notes); lettering on textiles (embroidery to flagmaking); and illuminated type (neon signage to holography). 1,400 colour illustrations 270 x 210 mm 240 pages

The FontFeed Jeremy Tankard, typographe perturbant Vous avez fait vos etudes au Royal College of Art. Qu’est-ce qui vous a décidé à la fin de vous spécialiser en dessin de caractères ? J’ai commence à m’intéresser aux caractères en general pendant mes etudes au RCA. J’ai passé beaucoup de temps dans la salle consacrée à la typographie. Pour ma thèse, j’ai dessiné le caractère Disturbance (plus tard commercialement distribué sous le non de FF Disturbance en 1993). Je l’ai appelé ainsi car mes directeurs de thèse me disait que “je ne pouvais pas faire cela à un alphabet ; c’était trop perturbant (disturbing en anglais)”. Mon diplôme en poche, j’ai décroché un poste chez Addison Design Consultants en design institutionnel. Est-ce que la dimension technique de votre travail (un caractère est une œuvre d’art… mais aussi un logiciel) constitue pour vous une chose importante ? Les caractères aujourd’hui n’existeraient pas sans la technologie - les uns ne vont pas sans l’autre. Le dessin de caractères n’a pas tellement changé au cours des ans.
