[BKARTS] Reminder: Blackletter lecture NYC this Wed., April 11

Please join the NY Chapter of the Guild of Book
Workers and Columbia University on Wednesday, April 11
at 6pm, for a lecture by typographic designer Peter
Bain. The talk will be devoted to blackletter, the
type style commonly known as gothic, which was first
cast for the Gutenberg Bible. Blackletter has gone
through many variations since then, and we will see a
wide range of typefaces and lettering that illustrate
the many ways Blackletter has been used and changed
over the centuries. 

Peter Bain is principal of Incipit, a NY studio
devoted to wordmarks, digital typefaces, handlettering
 and typographic design, with awards from AIGA and
Type Directors Club and has curated and written on
letterforms and lectured in the US and London. Bain
teaches at Parsons/The New School and Pratt Institute.

The lecture will be held in Butler Library, room 523
at Columbia University at 6pm. Columbia University is
located at 2960 Broadway at 116th Street. Butler
Library is located on the south side of the Quad.

The lecture is free, but please RSVP to Clare Manias
at cmanias@xxxxxxxxx or call (212) 851-5603.
Refreshments will be served.

This event is co-sponsored by the 
NY Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers and Columbia
University Libraries.
