Our resident font nerd, Thomas Phinney will speak at TypoWeek in Barcelona today about his experiences being a typography detective:
Font Detective, Extra Bold
Phinney discusses and shows evidence from several of the cases he has been called into as a typographic consultant, including a forged will, legislated point size requirements, a seemingly fake rabbi, and the forged documents about President Bush’s National Guard service. Learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries!
TypoWeek is held from July 2-6 at Bau Design School. For more information, visit the TYPOWEEK site.
