August 29, 2020 - August 30, 2020 The 4th Annual Fort Worth Antiquarian Book Fair

Right now, we are optimistic that we will be able to carry on with the Fort Worth Antiquarian Book Fair as scheduled in late August. That doesn’t mean we don’t take seriously the possibility of a disruption.

Exhibitor and visitor well-being is our priority, and we will postpone the event if circumstances require it. We are grateful to our wonderful hosts, The Fort Worth Masonic Center, who have allowed us this flexibility.

We will maintain an open dialog with our exhibitors and share any news with the public as soon as it is available. In the meantime, stay safe and please be responsible and considerate.

Sat 10am – 5pm                                                
Sun 10am – 4pm

Free parking available behind the building.

July 27, 2020 - July 30, 2020 ONLINE Stencilmania: Understanding Type Design as a Tool for Graphic Designers with Laura Meseguer.

Laura Meseguer Hosts Four-Day Online Stencil Type Design Workshop with Letterform Archive

Stencil Type Design has been proven as a great way to explain and practice the principles underlying the design of typefaces.

Award-Winning International Graphic & Type Designer from Spain
Marks the Archive’s First Class Taught Internationally

All Summer Programming – including one-on-one instruction – offered online

In this four day online intensive workshop, Laura Meseguer will offer 10 participants the possibility of creating the main characters of an alphabet constructed with a limited amount of elements. Participants will design typographic characters to compose a word, a message or a logo, that will serve later, to cut out stencils in a resistant material to be painted or printed. 

“We’re excited that we can host our in-person workshops online, allowing us to reach our community of designers beyond the SF Bay Area,” said Grendl Löfkvist, Type West Education Director. “And a bonus for our activist participants: Laura’s method gives you the skills to quickly make protest posters powerful enough to bring down the regime!”

Fri, July 28th: 10am – 1pm PDT / 1pm– 4pm EST
Sat, July 29th: 10am – 1pm PDT / 1pm – 4pm EST
