Jim Rimmer, "Canada's Goudy" passes away

Jim Rimmer, a well-respected type designer and all-around craftsman, died on January 8, 2010 in Vancouver, BC. Rimmer, much like Fred Goudy, was a prolific designer, printer and publisher. Jim Rimmer left an indelible mark on all those he came in contact with. On behalf of the team at Ascender, our condolences to the Rimmer family.
