A Typographic Ramble Around London (With Booze!)
Tue, Jun 26 at 6:30pm
The Lab and Glenn Fleishman have teamed up to bring you a rousing talk on the typography of London, coupled with an assortment of British spirits to wet your whistle and leave you intelligently tipsy.
Come enjoy a free, heavily illustrated presentation by Glenn Fleishman about the typographic and printing treasures of London, focusing on two major collections rarely open to the public, and a number of conversations and visits with printers, type designers, and historians. Glenn will answer questions and sign his latest book, London Kerning, from which he created the presentation.
