Join us Wednesday, June 25, at 6:00pm, in the Latino-Hispanic Community Meeting Room, Main Library, 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.
