[BKARTS] APHA-NYC: Justin Howes at Grolier Club 3/9/2004



Please excuse cross-posting. This is being posted for someone who is not on
the list.

March 9, 2004 -- APHA-NY

Justin Howes, Type Designer, Typographer and Curator of The Type Museum
"Typographical Monstrosities: The Grotesque in Nelson's England"
The Grolier Club
47 East 60th Street
New York, NY
6 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Justin Howes will give an account of the fierce debates which greeted the
appearance of sans serif letterforms on London posters and store-fronts
between 1803 and 1805. On this subject, Howes says "the topic emerged as a
result of hunting down Updike's 1918 joke about the 'Fashionable Egyptian
Sign-boards' that had quite shocked polite taste in London a century
earlier. Howes is a British typographer, type designer and historian.
