For our eleventh Standing-Room Only Lecture, Inge Druckrey will share research from her forthcoming book, In Honor of Letters. Focusing on important innovators Edward Johnston, Anna Simons, Rudolf von Larisch, and F.H. Ehmcke, Inge will trace the renewal of handwriting in the late-19th and early-20th centuries, and follow the influence of this renewal on 20th-century type design and graphic design in Germany and Switzerland.

Our speaker, Inge Druckrey, is a Basel-trained designer and educator. She has taught at Yale, RISD, University of Hartford, Philadelphia College of Art, and Kansas City Art Institute. She is Professor Emerita of Graphic Design at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia.


Thirty tickets are available for $10 each.

Standing-Room Only Lectures aim to present short talks about graphic design, typography, and collecting. The lectures are kept to about twenty minutes because—true to its name—the series takes place in our standing-room only gallery. So, wear comfortable shoes and bring a short attention span.
