AIGA Design Week in San Francisco is coming soon and on Wednesday, June 15 a lively crowd of typophiles will be mixing and mingling at an at-capacity event at the FontShop SF headquarters in the historic Storek Building, a technology arts building in the heart of SoMa. They’ll be celebrating the role of typography in design and the launch of the new book Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting by Carolina de Bartolo and Erik Spiekermann.
Carolina will be signing books and offering up a beautiful new letterpressed poster of all the typeface combinations from her book. Of course, there will be lots of copies of Explorations in Typography on hand for purchase. Additionally, there will be plenty of refreshments and libations for your enjoyment — even a special typographic cake draped in font-dant!
So how can you get in on the fun? Well, all California customers who purchase fonts featured in Explorations in Typography by Friday, June 10 will automatically be entered to win a pair of tickets to the event!
