Armed with everything from good old-fashioned gossip to documented evidence, type designer and amateur historian Rod McDonald will take you through some of the surprisingly rich and varied history of type in Canada. Don’t worry, although it’s a big country it has a short typographic history. But you will see the work of some remarkable Canadian talent, some well known internationally, some barely known within our own country, and some soon to be well known everywhere. Rod also intends to set the record straight on a few typefaces and their designers. So be prepared to be both informed and entertained.
Open to all - free admission.
