Yesterday a new exhibition entitled Italy and Alliance Graphique Internationale. 25 Graphic Designers of the 20th Century opened at the Magazzino delle Idee Trieste. It looks great, and if you can get to Triest, Italy by 6 January 2023, you can see it.
From 30 September through 30 December 2022, you can travel to the storied Bibliothèque Mazarine in Paris for a new exhibition, From Garamont to the Garamond: a typographic journey. There is also a book by Rémi Jimenes to check out, Claude Garamont : typographe de l’humanisme, written in French and published by the Éditions des Cendres.
Join Emily Gravett, the twice Kate-Greenaway-Medal-winning-illustrator, as she chats with her editor Suzanne Carnell, publisher at the children’s book imprint Two Hoots. Emily’s distinctive illustrations and stories are laced with wit and unexpected turns. Best known for now picture book classics like Meerkat Mail and Orange Pear Apple Bear, they’ll talk about Emily’s journey to becoming an illustrator, how they work together, the art of entertaining the reader as well as the young listener, and look at her new book 10 Cats. This 11 October 2022 lecture at St Bride in London is another activity you can attend online or in person.
To coincide with the “A Kingdom of Cardboard” exhibition at the St Bride Foundation, celebrating the BBC’s centenary, Bob Richardson will deliver a lecture on the collection of BBC-related ephemera he has amassed over 35 years since starting work at the BBC in 1977. His collection holds many treasures, including iconic channel idents, an illuminated Police Box panel from Tom Baker’s Tardis from 1980, studio logos used on set for Match of the Day, an early example of the famous Blue Peter badge, designed by Tony Hart in 1963 for a fee of £100 guineas and much more. On 21 September, the lecture will take place in person at St Bride in London and online via Zoom. A ticket must be purchased to attend in either fashion, so act now!
