Experiencing typography 活版活字鋳造見学体験会

I took part in the mini workshop at a typographer "Tsukiji Katsuji (築地活字)" in Yokohama.  In the office, there were old casting machines and a huge numbers of types in various faces.  We, 6 participants, learnd about typorogy, watched the demonstration of casting types.  Then, we tried to cast two pieces of types in "Souchou" face (宋朝体), to print our own cards. 
Thanks to Mr. Omatsu (a typography craftsman) and Mr. Hiraku (the president), I had a meaningful time.
