Great Comic Book Typography (Lecture): September 17, Type Directors Club, NYC)

Here's the announcement of an upcoming lecture by "Friend of the Blog" Arlen Schumer. I'm really hoping to attend, not least because I have a professional interest in the topic. Plus, Arlen's lectures are always mind-blowingly illustrated. So if you're in the neighborhood on September 17, come on down!

An overview of some of the best typography in comic book history -- hand-lettered balloons, ads and logotypes -- and the impact it has had on Schumer's own comic book-styled illustration for the advertising and editorial markets over the past 25 years.
