Typography and the History of the World

by Lance Kagey. I wouldn't miss this, guys!

I will be giving a talk on Thursday night at the Art Museum entitled Typography and the History of the World. I'd love you all to come out. It is going to be very interactive/audience participation oriented. Join me from 7:00 - 8:00 pm next Thursday (July 17). I'd love for you to be part of the fun. And it's FREE. you can't beat that.

I know typography can be a drag for some artsy fartsy types, but this stuff can be really fascinating!  And I think Lance is the perfect person to demonstrate this, as his work exemplifies his mastery of the subject.  If you are in the Graphic Design/ Graphic Arts field, this is a must!  Let's help out our comrade and learn some stuff while we're at it!  I'd like to see a couple of people be there, and you know who you are...

Ok, I can't edit the above information, but the top paragraph is copied from a post from Lance on last weeks chalk-off thread.

The bottom paragraph is mine. To clarify, this is an event by Lance Kagey, not me. I caught it in the thread and wanted to bring it to our attention

Hey, I like World History. And I like free.

Thank you for the invitation.

Thanks all, for the encouragement. I think it's going to be fun. Of course, I'm a little quirky that way.

peace,

I hope I can make the presentation. I love the subject (which is why I made subtle reference to the Helvetica documentary in that chalk-thread) but I know very little. Only a sheep-stealer wouldn't find typography fascinating, though.
