Delight in a selection of posters, calligraphy, concrete poetry, ephemera, and more on the theme of love and relationships, curated by Letterform Archive docents Laura Tjho and Christina Newhard.

Tabletop tours are 90-minute presentations that take place around a large table in our reading room. During the tour, we spend 60–75 minutes talking about each object on the table one by one, then allow 15–30 minutes at the end for guests to take a closer look and ask questions.

Registration is limited to give everyone space around the table and the opportunity to interact with the materials. Sign up today to reserve your spot! To register, login to your account and click on Member Benefits to find the Eventbrite link.

Not yet a member? Don’t fret – there‘s still time to be part of the excitement. Sign up today and secure your spot at this exclusive event.

Laura Tjho

Laura Tjho (she/her) is a designer and illustrator. Since elementary school she took great pleasure in making sure her class notes look neat and beautiful. After graduating from design school at Carnegie Mellon, she reawakened that desire to make pretty letterforms and spent most of her free time lettering and practicing calligraphy. She had several tech start-up gigs before landing a sweet job at Levi’s San Francisco. She is currently exploring Hanzi letterforms and curious how that will influence her other work. Her latest hobby is making cute stickers because she believes we need more stationary.
