Dive into the works created by Louise E. Jefferson, a Black woman cartographer, calligrapher, illustrator, graphic designer, and author.

Drawing on the estate of Louise E.

Letterform Lectures are a public aspect of the Type West postgraduate program. The series is co-presented by the San Francisco Public Library, where events are free and open to all.
