(NY) Tobias Frere-Jones and Nina Stössinger

Join these well-known typeface designers for an evening about letterforms!
Tobias Frere-Jones will explore the ways that letterforms have been used to thwart forgery. The narrative will focus on banknotes from the American Colonial period to the present day, with additional examples of passports, government permits and lottery tickets. Nina Stössinger will talk about convention and contrast, exploration and experimentation, both breaking and making the rules of design.
