  • Where SFPL Main Library, Koret Auditorium

Join us at the San Francisco Public Library for a Letterform Lecture with Paul Herrera, who will talk about his inspiration, motivation, and process of creating the Trajan Inscription in slate. He'll illustrate how and where he first began his journey as a letter cutter and will shed light on how he became interested in such an ancient craft, the rewards of such a voluntary apprenticeship, and the experiences and relationships that led to the challenge of replicating this famous Roman inscription.

This and all Letterform Lectures are a public aspect of the Type West postgraduate certificate program. The series is co-presented by the San Francisco Public Library where events are free and open to all. We encourage registration, but it is not required to attend and no tickets are checked at the door.
