City Livin' | Taipei: Ri-Xing Type Foundry / 日星鑄字行
I am a sucker for the dying arts. That said, it is definitely a perk to me being in an art school and having the chance to get my hands on these fading treasures. I visited Ri-Xing in Taipei to buy some types for future usage and oh lord, I can easily spent hours in the shop. As the only remaining place in the world that carries a complete set of lead-type traditional Chinese characters, Ri-Xing is a place full of history and the beauty of art. I can't wait to learn more about it.
Characters I got and my poorly printed tests.
