I took a trip to the eastern shore of Wisconsin to go camping. While there, we stopped by Twin Rivers to visit the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. At the Museum I picked up a replica copy of an 1869 Speciment Book from the Johnson Type Foundry of Philadelphia. Great visual inspiration. The visit to Trivers was a great visual palette cleanser as the topic of design and layout for Manny has been occupying my mind a lot recently. A Campfire Focus Group was formed later on and we went over potential fonts and layouts.
