The type cases in this lab need much love and attention, and we are long overdue for a proper type specimen reference catalog to make designing projects a bit easier. Some types may have been redistributed incorrectly, others may be dirty or dusty. For this task, I ask each of you to select one case of type, whether it’s a single typeface or a case that houses multiple typefaces, and spend some time cleaning, organizing and tending to anything needed, taking care, and note any issues you may encounter. As part of this process, you will use a 30 pt. slug and set some of the type for our specimen catalog. Depending on the point size, it may be a word, a sentence, or a fragment of a sentence. You may choose what to say, but try to set something that showcases the diversity of the typeface.
