History of the Alphabet & The Typographer's Dream

Free lecture & demonstration:
Elizabeth Anderson (of Anderson Krygier) will roll out butcher paper and take us through a ‘real time’ illustrative demonstration and lecture on the history of the western alphabet, from the first time man produced a representative character to the letters typographers dream about today.

Stay for the performance "The Typographer’s Dream" by Adam Bock. Attendance at the lecture does not include admission to the play, but use the code word "alphabet" when purchasing and save $10.00 off on tickets. "The Typographer's Dream" asks us to ponder: Are we what we do for a living?
