  • Where

Our Associate Curator and Editorial Director, Stephen Coles, will present highlights from the Archive’s growing collection of global writing systems, including posters, manuscripts, type specimens, and other typographic artifacts. Special guests with expertise in specific scripts will be your guides.

For this event we’ll travel to regions beyond our first “Typographic Trip” (which focused on Arabic objects in the collection). Journey with us to avant-garde Russia, 1920s Japan, mid-century India, and contemporary South Korea.
