The Evergreen Press / John Grice

I thought for this post I should keep it in the family and try and give my uncle some well deserved exposure and praise. His workshop, based in Gloucestershire (just outside Stroud) is housed in a wartime bomb proof building and is home to a well ordered range of typefaces. Some date back over a century and others are pretty unique such as the bold sans serif Zeppelin face. Seeing John meticulously at work setting type for a large book and hearing the wuur and click of the old presses is an inspiring experience. Finding a new generation to learn this dying art is the problem.
