Typographical Lecture

For anyone who wants to cross the Tasman for the day, indeed any sea or ocean….

The Printing Museum is pleased to announce that Mr René Kerfante, former Managing-Director of Monotype Typography will be visiting The Museum on February 27th, 2017. Mr Kerfante, who has worked with most of the great names in typography such as Adrian Frutiger, Hermann Zapf and Matthew Carter, has agreed to give a lunchtime talk after the museum visit.

The topic will be: My life as Typesetter and Typographer: the transition from metal to photo to digital to computer typesetting, the production of typefaces for these technologies and my role in it.

Tickets will be limited. Members of The Printing Museum and their guests will have first priority. The central Wellington venue and cost of lunch (suitable but affordable) has not been fixed yet. However, expressions of interest can be registered now by email to: [email protected] or by phone to 04 475-9909.

A low-res digital version (minus letterpress supplement) of the 20-page December edition of Type High, The Museum’s newsletter, is available on the website: http://www.theprintingmuseum.org.nz
