It’s been a busy month for me, and probably the worst one on record for the history of eightface, at least in terms of regular posts. But for once, I actually have a decent excuse: I’m starting an MA in Book Design at the University of Reading inside of the week. The school has an amazing typography department and I’m honoured to be a part of it.
You can look forward to a good deal of design and typography related material on the site, but it might be a little while still, at least until I get settled. Currently, I don’t actually have a place to live… my application was a tad on the late side, so I’m lucky to even be at the school. To the Brits out there looking for a pint, drop me a line via email and I can give you my cell number.
