While we are in our homes more at present, it is an excellent opportunity to do some professional reading and research on areas of type.
Peter Geyer is the Custodian of the AusAPT Type Research and Practice Collection (Collection), available as a resource for AusAPT members. As you may know, he has researched, written and presented on type for over 25 years. Moreover, Peter is keen to assist with knowledge and practice on type through the resources of the Collection and his extensive experience and expertise. You can read more about the Collection here.
The Collection is a fixed resource but also a growing collection as Peter continues to research, locate and download articles of interest for the type community. He is happy to forward articles, books and journals from the digital collection and there are extra copies of various type publications that can be sent or delivered.
So if you are preparing a paper or new area of research or practice, have a burning question or want to explore an area of type or personality in more detail, head over to Ask Peter. There you will find a form you can easily complete that will head directly to Peter. He will respond to your query and assist with resources and advice.
This unique and valuable service is part of your AusAPT membership, so take advantage of it and access the Collection and Peter’s expertise.
