Join us for an illustrated talk by John Stevens, an internationally acclaimed master calligrapher, designer of logotypes and illustrator of expressive letterforms. He is the author of a recent monograph about his art and philosophy, Scribe: Artist of the Written Word (2013).
A transplanted New Yorker, John lives, works, and teaches in North Carolina. San Francisco Public Library holds many examples of Stevens' original calligraphy in the Harrison Collection of Calligraphy and Lettering. A sampling of his commercial work can be seen on his website: johnstevensdesign.com.
Sponsored by the Book Arts and Special Collections Center and the Friends of Calligraphy.
