Our fifth Standing-Room Only Lecture will have type designer Matthew Carter coming all the way from Cambridge to discuss his ambitious new Latin superfamily of serif, sans, slab, and rounded typefaces. Commissioned by Morisawa, the Japanese type company, and prepared in collaboration with a team of Japanese designers, Carter’s new Role is the result of years of hard work and international travel—all of which he’ll sum up in about twenty minutes.
Alas, tickets for this event are no longer available.
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.
