The recent short 8-minute film, Baskerville, finally makes it to YouTube. Worked on by 12 of my dissertation students (although I can’t claim a shred of credit, as all the work was done over in the studios under the supervision of David Osbaldestin) in 2008, the film…

“…celebrates John Baskerville, the man, the typeface and his future legacy. This short film explores the technological impact and cultural achievements of John Baskerville’s life and work.”

Baskerville fonts can be had here.

There are BIAD Open Days coming up soon at BIAD in Birmingham…
