On Thursday afternoon Marys Letterpress class from MICA came to Globe for a visit. Bob gave them a tour of the shop and a mini history lesson about Globe.

They got a crash course in how Bob would lock up a form. In the video below Bob talks about how he plans out a lock up

The class got a chance to roam around the shop and drool at all the gorgeous type. It was fun to pull open draws of some of my favorites and let them have a peak. Ryan, a junior GD major, got just as excited as I do about 10-49, a slender gothic supermodel.

We put them to work alphabetizing type. They were an immense help, between 15 of them they alphabetized 17 draws of type in about an hour. That’s pretty impressive since half of it was really full drawers of 6 line.
