Charles Nix: WWJD? (What Would Justus Do?)

September 20, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Messages from the dead! Mystical communication across two centuries! International intrigue! Typographic treasures guarded by a network of biblio-zealots! A massive cabal! A plot so colossal no less than 90 collaborators involved! A Corsican invader! Genius hampered by Emperor Napoleon! German Romance! The Caspar David Friedrich of type!

Behold! An illustrated lecture! Join Charles Nix for an extensive look at Justus Erich Walbaum—the 250-year-old Modern man!

Charles Nix is a designer, typographer, and educator. He is a Type Director at Monotype, where he, Carl Crossgrove, and Juan Villaneuva designed the 69-font Walbaum family, released in June 2018.
