Making Faces

Making Faces, a film by Richard Kegler documenting the lost art of pantographic type making will be shown at the Museum of Contemporary Craft on October 29th at 7:00 and 9:00 pm, with a Q & A session with the filmmaker after each showing. The 45 minute film details the working process of the late Jim Rimmer as he designs and casts the font Stern, the only type font ever to have been released in both electronic and metal versions simultaneously. The font is a commemoration of the fine printer and type caster C. Christopher Stern, of Sedro-Woolley, Washington,

The showing is a fundraiser for the C.C. Stern Type Foundry, a non-profit working museum of type casting in Portland, Oregon.
