Designing a Libre Font Specimen Book

A session at Libre Graphics Meeting 2013

Friday 12th April, 2013

10:40am to 10:40am (WET)

This talk presents the outcome of an intense 5-day graphic design workshop, during which a team of twelve students (of HEAD University of arts and design, Geneva) created a book of type specimens entirely made with libre fonts. The book has been mass-produced with cheap print-on-demand technology.
The repository is here (you can already see some first alpha tests): https://github.com/greyscalepres...
