rossm.jpgCan’t make it NYC’s Type Directors Club tonight? Try for Thursday, when Ross MacDonald one of our favorite illustrators (and authors, designers, and letterpress printers — don’t even get us started on his movie props) presents “Dead Metal.” Here’s hoping that after the talk he’ll distribute broadsides of this gem from his recent article for AIGA:
