A Typographic Journey: A Conversation with Jack Stauffacher and Chuck Byrne
Jack Stauffacher, a San Francisco–based printer, produces books and prints that challenge the conventions of typography. His work explores the aesthetic potential of letterpress tools to activate the space of the page. In this conversation with colleague and professor Chuck Byrne, Stauffacher will discuss his uses of type, which have ranged from kinetic abstract compositions to a rigorous investigation of the visual portrayal of dialogue, as well as other important projects from his over seventy year career.
