CC Stern Type Foundry

On Saturday, I went to an open house to celebrate the new CC Stern Type Foundry in Portland.

This is so exciting – a small and dedicated group of printers and type enthusiasts has inherited the Monotype foundry equipment once belonging to Chris Stern, of Stern & Faye Printers in Sedro-Woolley, Washington.  Together, they are busting ass to repair and restore the equipment back to working order, in hopes of creating a working museum to teach folks about the industry and art of type casting.

This is a great group of people, and they’re working so hard – please check out what they’re up to!

Volunteers and donations are always welcome, and you can also back their Kickstarter fundraiser here: http://kck.st/edabub

Only two days remain!
