In the 1790s in Paris, Firmin Didot reaches maturity as a punch-cutter. His prior years of training have led up to the production of typefaces that would later become icons.

This event is part of the Letterform Lecture series, co-presented by Type@Cooper West and the San Francisco Public Library, and sponsored by Adobe Typekit.
