Typography and the written word

Categories: Events, Learning things, Useful/interesting

It's just under two weeks until an event which promises to combine two of my favourite things; typography and writing. (Make that three favourite things if you count the fact the event title is a pun. Ahhh, I do like a good pun. But I digress.)

On Wednesday 16th March, Type Writing: A One Day Symposium will "explore the link between the typographer and the writer of words, be their texts literary, commercial, instructional or inspirational; whether they have been produced by a professional writer, graphic auteur or the casual passer-by who has simply given form to his thoughts."

Speakers from the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, USA and New Zealand will cover all manner of curious-sounding topics including 'carving poetry', 'the word as pictures' and 'ouija boards, index typewriters and the ventriloquism of agency in the fin-de-siècle'.

Sounds type-tastic – and highly intriguing. Further details and a booking form can be found over on the Typographic Hub website.
