ABOUT







Peter Enneson

Peter Enneson is an Art Dirctor and Graphic Designer living and working in Toronto. His work has been awarded in design competitons sponsored by the National Magazine Awards Foundation, the Art Directors Club of Toronto, and others. Recently, his Typographical exploration of Genesis was selected for inclusion in Type Culture, a Canadian competition. Peter Enneson is preparing a translation of Gerrit Noordzij's De streek: theorie van het schrift, and a book based on his ATypI 2003 presentation on Henk Krijger's work. He holds a Masters of Philosophy degree in Aesthetics. His writings include a piece on Henk Krijger's 1972 painting The survivors, and a reply to Peter Burnhill's Type spaces in Typography Papers 4, 2000.

In 2014, in collaboration with Patrick Griffin of Canada Type, he published a meticulous revival of Henk Krijger's Raffia Initials (1952, Lettergieterij Amsterdam, where it is known as Raffia Initialen) that is based on photcopies and digtal images of the master drawings. Raffia Initialen was distributed in North America by Amsterdam Continental Types and Graphic Equipment Inc. in electrotype format, and later through VGC on strips of typositor film. Currently licensing rights are owned by the Linotype Corporation. The master drawings were located in 2001 by longtime Lettergieterij Amsterdam employee Henk Gianotten, and are now part of the Special Collections division of the Univeriteitsbibliotheek of the University of Amsterdam.
