Barrie Tullett’s Typographic Dante at the National Poetry Library, South Bank, London SE1 8XX until 30 June
100 typographic works over 30 years, illustrating the Cantos from the Divine Comedy. Divided into the Divine Comedy's 3 parts of the Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise, ISTD member Barrie Tullett has taken one obsolete technology for each: letterpress for the Inferno, a typewriter for Purgatory and Letraset for Paradise (Paradise is not yet complete). These beautiful images are not to be missed.
Barrie is Programme Leader for Graphic Design at Lincoln and also runs the Caseroom Press.
It is with great sadness we announce that Freda Sack, Honorary Fellow and Past President of the ISTD passed away peacefully in the early hours of Wednesday 13 February. Freda was a pivotal figure in the Society and her contribution to the typographic industry worldwide has been immense. She will be sorely missed by all of her typographic family and friends.
Jost Hochuli’s visit to London in September was a rare opportunity to see an exhibition of this renowned Swiss designer’s work – and hear his views on historical type matters and book design.
