To thank supporters and ambassadors, we are running the first of our exclusive events.
The event will be held at Laithwaites Wine (219-221 Stoney Street, SE1 9AA), 7-9.30pm. It will be led by Sarah Hyndman, the founder of Type Tasting. She was a recent guest on BBC Radio 4's Word of Mouth, has given a TEDx talk, is the author of 'Why Fonts Matter' and publishes collaborative research with Professor Charles Spence from the University of Oxford.
We will be taking part in a series of games and activities—including sound, taste and smell—with five delicious wines. Type history is brought to life as you find out how typefaces not only changed the world but that their power still resonates. For example, parallels can be seen in the social change and revolutions triggered when print first proliferated, and in the debate about the influence of social media today.
