[BKARTS] Hermann Zapf to speak in Chicago, Tues. May 20

I wanted to remind those of you in the Chicago area, or within driving distance, that Prof. Hermann Zapf will be speaking next Tuesday night. Zapf will team with Linotype Library Type Director Akira Kobayashi to present the story behind the development of Optima Nova and other typographic tales.

During this event, The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) will present the first SOTA Typography Award to Zapf, an ex officio board member of the organization. The awards presentation will serve as a prelude to a planned tribute to Zapf, which will take place this summer during TypeCon2003 in Minneapolis.

This lecture will take place at the UIC Theatre Building, Room L285, 1044 West Harrison in Chicago. A reception will begin at 6:00 p.m., with the lecture commencing at 6:45 p.m. Admission is $35 in advance or $45 at the door, and $25 for students showing valid ID. Seating is very limited, and tickets may be purchased by calling 1-888-698-8545. Organized by Dynamic Graphics as part of their educational series, the event is sponsored by Creatas, Linotype, Rohner Letterpress, Fox River Paper Co., and STEP Inside Design magazine.

I hope to see some of you there - it should be a wonderful evening!

Cheers, Tamye
