A few weeks ago I had pleasure of assisting Daniel García Andújar in printing of 4 posters for the opening of his exhibition 'Plus Utra' at the KIOSK in Ghent for which he especially flew over from Barcelona. After going through the reach wood type collection of the MIAT (now Industrie Museum) Daniel chose the suitable type. As he already had an experience in typesetting we quickly finalised the composition and after running some tests and makeready everything had been printed on FAG 405 at the printing department of the museum. It was a lovely experience. Nice to meet you Daniel!Read More
