Happy to be part of the Christmas Cards exchange project. Nearly 50 contributors from Europe, US and Mexico took part in this project. Every card was different and unique of its kind. Thanks everyone!Read More
A few days ago I was told by one of the readers (Gordon Chesterman) that “Printers don't retire, surely not, they just lose their justification”.
Well I think Henri Thomas from Evere (BE) might be a living proof of this statement. Just a few month ago, at the age of 82(!) he transformed his workspace in a little museum which is open for the visitors (only by appointment). A must visit in the year 2015!
This weekend Thomas Gravemaker from Letterpress Amsterdam visited Gent to give a 2-day workshop at the MIAT. After a short introduction we, a group of 8 people, got an assignment to create 8 formes from typographic elements and ornaments.

"Art During The Great War" is an exhibition in Antwerp (BE) built around six central figures, Rik Wouters, Emile Verhaeren, Cyriel Buysse, André de Ridder, Jules Schmalzigaug and Paul van Ostaijen. It explores how each was affected by the Great War.
Inspired by Paul van Ostaijen's work graphic designers Tom Hautekiet en Herman Houbrechts created a typographic poster for the exhibition and printed it at the Frans Masereel Centrum. Nice!
