Typographer Jim Rimmer doles out hot type

Typecasting machines spewing hot lead. Basement studio. Tons (metric?) of cast iron. What's not to like?

Jim Rimmer has been working in printing and typography for the last 50 years. And the last few years his dedicated self to the letterpress and limited edition books.

Now his work has caught the attention of the Graphic Designers of Canada.

This week the GDC will vote on whether to bestow him their highest award - an honorary fellowship.

To find out more about Jim Rimmer, VBD visits Jim's studio.
