I joined the printmaking club at my university as printmaking is one of my primary mediums and I wanted to get into letterpress printing and bookmaking.  We have a printing press and that is good.  What we lack however, is a good set of type.  All of our type was apparently donated this year and is rather large and in a Gothic typeface.  Furthermore, we don't have enough to print book pages.  As such, I am now planing on ordering 12 pt. Jensen Old Style metal type, punctuation and the rest for my own use.  I need to figure out if I should get ornate initial letters or if I should make those in wood with my own designs.  Next I plan to look into how to make wood engravings that can be used with the text on a page.

On a different note, every freshman at my university has to read Wassily Kandinsky's "Concerning the Spiritual in Art" for a class.  I must say, I disagree with him on most points.  I like my art to stir emotion in people, yes, but his theory about moving the viewer's spirit is too far out there for me.  Also, I completely disagree with his philosophy of moving away from representational art and his triangle and the "artist as prophet" ideas.  I find him out of touch with reality and on the whole, very pretentious.  I like some of his art a little, but not that much.  All said, Kandinsky was the greatest artist and thinker who every lived, or at least Kandinsky thought so.
