"Time, Technology, and the Shapes of Letters" Recommended Member Picks Free Agenda

When: Sat., June 2, 11 a.m. 2012

Like putting week-old leftovers into an omelet and calling it a meal, the old can be made new again. Type designer Russell Maret, who uses digital techniques to create new, historically inspired typefaces, knows this well. Join him for Time, Technology, and the Shapes of Letters, a talk about letter design, pretypographic letterforms, and the future of private-press printing. —Jamie Keiles
