Commemorating the centenary of Johnston’s lettering for London Transport, and the 90th anniversary of Gill Sans, the talk will be accompanied by an exhibition of the Gill Sans wooden printing types in the collection of Leicester Print Workshop, and a screening of the short film on the making of Johnston 100 for TfL. Proudly supported by Monotype.

This will be a free event but seats are limited, and we’ll be asking for donations to fund the continuing work of the LPW; bookings from February 1st via the DMU Cultural Exchanges Festival 2017 website.

Postscript; the event is now sold out (Feb 10th) and oversubscribed; PLEASE if you are holding a ticket and won’t be able to join us on the night, can you cancel the booking so someone else can use it. Ta.
