Join Bloomsbury Publishing and Cambridge University Libraries for an evening on the revolutionary impact of typefaces on design, art, life and politics.
Hear from a unique panel of esteemed designers; Craig Oldham, David Jury, Barbara Brownie and Dennis Duncan as they debate the biggest advances in typeface design across the centuries and the importance of preserving typefaces for future generations of designers all over the world. After all, where would designers be without typefaces that consistently change and evolve over time.
Bloomsbury Publishing are delighted to present this event in conjunction with the University Library who are embarking on a project to reassess the collections contained in its historical printing room, and offer all guests the opportunity to see highlights from the collections including original punches for Baskervilles type and objects from William Morris’ Kelmscott Press at this unique event.
Our expert panel will reveal about typefaces then and now but also share their thoughts on where future of typeface design may be heading. It promises to be an ideal evening out for designers, artists, campaigners and typographic fans everywhere. We hope you can join us.
This event is taking place at Bloomsbury Publishing in London, not the University Library in Cambridge. See full address below.
Talk is 6:30pm to 8:00pm (doors open at 6pm for drinks).
