The reader should be fully absorbed in the content and barely be aware of all the effort and care put into its layout on the page.

Before the interval, Euan took us through the gamut of font… Read more…

This month at Beaminster was Show and Tell - people were invited to show their favourite or most useful apps for iPad and/or iPhone and the response was heartening as, apart from Michael, 5 other people stepped up to the projector.

April in Bournemouth saw 9 members gathered, including one new member (welcome Barrie). We were treated to a fascinating journey through the history of type, design and printing from Euan Williams with many an intriguing digression along the way.

There were 13 members attending this month, and Derek gave us two interesting talks, covering WhatsApp and Yojimbo.

He described the current move towards SSDs (flash memory) that are already ubiquitous in iPhones and iPads.

We then explored the many disk formats available… Read more…
