Hi there Tom,
Maybe I can help you out with a few good leads. First of all, about Matthew
Carter. Do excuse me if you already have some of this info however I
thought I would include it in case. There is a fantastic interview with him
done by Erik Spiekermann in the Typography special issue of "Eye" magazine.
No.11, Volume 3 1993. Page 10-16. It's thorough and discusses many aspects
of his life and work. I believe that Matthew Carter has a type foundry
called "Carter and Cone" They can be reached at:
"Carter & Cone Type Inc."
Cambridge, MA 02140
Ph: (617) 576-0398
I don't have an email address for them, however by writing or calling them
you may be able to get hold of one. If you want information about his work,
that's probably the best and most recent avenue to look at.
About The Walker Arts Center: you can reach them at [log in to unmask]
I suggest you address your letter to Laurie Haycock Makela as she is the
Design Director of Walker Art Center, the email address is not hers
personally but I'm sure your letter will be passed on to her by the person.
(I was not informed whos address that is, it was at the bottom of a
document by itself). Their snail-mail address is:
Walker Art Center
Hope I have been of assistance.
