Neumes 25 is the result of the Quiet Fire Improvisation in Typography & Sound hosted by Golgonooza Letter Foundry and Press.
“My first experience at a Quiet Fire Workshop left me dazzled. When I arrived back to my house my friend asked me, ‘Where have you been? You’re glowing!’ The experience was thoughtful and well curated, with much room for creativity to carry you deep into the moment. The magic and history of the press hold you as you get to explore a medium from so many moons ago through words and poetry, feel them as you make space for them in the physical world… bring them to life. Combined with the element of improvisational sound, this workshop guides you to a new place of self-exploration, allows you to conjure something that never existed before with a room full of new friends. The unique experience, history and surroundings of Golgonooza and the Quiet Fire Workshop with Julia is something I wish for everyone to experience. It will breathe life into your fire.”Meg Graham, artist
“The Quiet Fire Residency opened up new possibilities both conceptually and creatively in a dynamic environment. A great way to recharge work by collaborating with Julia and others in a project based letterpress edition.”Janine Wong, artist
“The opportunity to work with the other members of Quiet Fire on this visual, musical, tactile project was exhilarating. Everyone brought their A game, working and playing with such focus and openness. It was an honor to work alongside such highly creative artists.”Gahlord Dewald, musician
