Lettering: Objects, Examples, Practice
Earlier today we finally made it along to the fantastic Lettering: Objects, Examples, Practice exhibition at Central Saint Martins. The show is a potted history of lettering and typography, featuring examples from the college's Museum & Study Collection and its Central Lettering Record, as well as some bits and bobs from alumni.
There are a whole series of photographs of Edward Johnston's incredible type drawings on blackboards:
It's an absolute feast of a show, which we can't recommend enough. It's only open for a few more days (it ends on Saturday 12 April), so if you haven't been, get along, you won't regret it. (Oh, and Professor Phil Baines, co-curator of the show, will be giving a tour of the exhibition on Thursday 10 April at 1pm.) Read more about the show on the Eye blog.
