Our twenty-sixth Standing-Room Only Lecture will have Nina Stössinger coming from the Borough of Homes and Churches to share visual notes from urban wanders in pursuit of unexpected letterforms: foreign and unfamiliar, decayed or brand new, sometimes barely legible, sometimes hardly legal, sometimes funny, often powerful. There’s so much life outside our geographic, social, and professional bubbles and Nina’s going to remind us why.

Our speaker, Nina Stössinger, is Senior Typeface Designer at Frere-Jones Type and teaches type design at Yale. Her new book with Kel Troughton is No Parking.


Thirty tickets are available for $10 each.

Date and Time
Thursday, January 25 at 7p
Doors open at 6p for mingling.

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.

We will be checking ticket reservations at the door. Don’t bother printing your ticket as we can look you up by name. We will have a stand-by line at the door for this event. Five minutes before the event begins, we will open up the event to those in the stand-by line on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have reserved a ticket for this event, please note that it will guarantee your place until 6:55 pm on the day of the event.

Will this talk be recorded or available for streaming?
