Exhibition of Berthold Wolpe's lettering archive
« on: September 28, 2017, 02:56:05 PM »
Hi all,

Not strictly calligraphic, but involving exquisite hand lettering, so I think it's relevant!

The Type Archive in Kennington, South London is reopening to the public, starting with a month-long exhibition of Berthold Wolpe's work.

http://www.typearchive.org/

I visited on Tuesday evening, and it's a beautiful exhibition - small, but condensed, looking at the design of five of Wolpe's typefaces, and some of his book jacket designs. If you can get along, it's worth the time.

Looks amazing! Might be a bit of a bus ride for me though. :)

It's a good reason for a paddle across the pond!
