After Aaron’s talk, three more speakers will take the stage this fall. These lectures are all free and open to the public, but it’s never too soon to grab a seat — they do fill up!
- On October 3, learn about “The proliferation of 19th (and 20th) century wood type and its impact on typographic norms” from David Shields.
- Graphic Means director Briar Levit returns to San Francisco on October 17 to present “Before Desktop Publishing: The Democratization of Type in the Cold Type Era.”
- Our own Dan Rhatigan wraps up the year discussing Souped-up Font Formats on November 7.
We’re pleased to sponsor this series, which takes place at the Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch, 100 Larkin Street. All talks begin at 6 p.m. You can watch videos of the past lectures here.
