Susan Wightman at the Dulwich Literary Festival: How to Design a Book

  • Informatics Suite Dulwich College Dulwich Common, London SE21 7LD United Kingdom (map)

Writers may choose the words that we read, but typographers define their appearance on the page.

In this session designer Susan Wightman (co-author with Michael Mitchell of the definitive Typographic Style Handbook), takes us through the art and science of typography.

She will explain basic typographic principles and what makes good typography, using one-off prints from her design agency Libanus Press. As well as budding designers this session should appeal to all those who are fascinated by the history of the written word.
