Typography Lecture

For those of you who are into typography and have an appreciation for the classics, Robert Bringhurst - author of The Elements of Typographic Style - is speaking in San Francisco this coming Saturday, October 27. This lecture is one of the last lectures of the Zapfest series that was put on in honor of Hermann Zapf.

The Bringhurst book is one of my favorites for learning about classic page construction and use of grids in design. The concepts apply equally as well in print as they do for content pages online. The ideas of using a grid to separate and define content as well as bring a sense of hierarchy and structure are timeless.

This lecture definitely should not be missed.

Lecture will begin at 2:00 p.m.

San Francisco Public Library Koret Auditorium, Lower Level

100 Larkin Street at Grove San Francisco, California

Ahh, if only I lived in San Francisco. If someone knows of a web site that will publish a transcript of his presentation, or better yet a video/audio stream, please post it. Bringhurst's work is great.
