As part of its AGM, GDC BC is proud to present the western Canada premiere screening of Carl Dair at Enschedé: The Last Days of Metal Type.

The film is a recently reworked version of the 1957 film shot by Canadian design pioneer Carl Dair while he was studying type making in Holland with one of the last great European letter engravers, Paul Rädisch. The film reveals the beauty and skill involved in this obsolete art form and adds to the world’s body of knowledge on making typefaces.

Come for the AGM, stay for the film. See you there!
