This is the eighth edition of our monthly type specimen poster project!
"A Portrait of William H Page"
This long awaited (my apologies) poster features both the front and the back of this beautiful and funky typeface from the 1800's. In researching this face I came to know a lot about the man who founded the company that created it, Mr. William H. Page. He was way ahead of his time and a man of many talents and a dynamic entrepreneur. After making his mark, a huge one at that, in the flash-in-the-pan industry of manufacturing wood type he moved right into another invention heavy, up and coming market, steam heaters. This poster is an ode to the maverick and gregarious man behind the type.
Each poster in this series consists of a pangram, a sentence that contains all the letters in the alphabet, showing off a different typeface from the Jon Selikoff Collection here at IS Projects.
5% of all proceeds from this projects will go to the Greater New York Chapter of the ALS Association in Jon’s memory to raise awareness and fund research for a cure!
