The City Seen: October 23-25 

Notes from the weekend

This weekend City took a vintage take on fall. We made a visit on Friday to the Book Arts Fair at RIT, and took in the Rochester Tweed Ride on Sunday.

The Book Arts Fair brought together printers, publishers, artists, and more to RIT's Press library on Friday afternoon. Monumental Press & Type Foundry were showing unique typesets and various fonts they had created, and publishers like 21st Editions had brought fully produced sets. Local artist Michael Murray had works for show, and RIT Press held an open house in which volunteers could operate its 1891 Kelmscott-Goudy Press.

The Great Rochester Tweed Ride got lucky with perfect weather this past Sunday -- it was all clear, sunny skies and a high of 65 degrees. After a 13-mile ride, bikers gathered in College Town to rest and pose for pictures in their dapper attire.
