The Type Directors Club
celebrates its 70th anniversary with a day-long series of typography talks and an evening reception on Friday, March 10th. It is to be held at the School of Visual Arts Theater, 333 West 23rd Street.
A panel of type luminaries will speak about their careers, their views on the typographic professions, memories of the Type Directors Club, and the future of type. The day will close with a 6 pm cocktail reception at the SVA Theater.

Speakers will include TDC Medalists Ed Benguiat, Louise Fili, Paula Scher, and Erik Spiekermann, as well as former TDC presidents Allan Haley and Charles Nix.

Twenty-nine Type Directors Club Medals have been awarded in recognition of outstanding contributions to typography. Hermann Zapf won the first in 1967 and Emigre (Zuzana Licko and Rudy VanderLans) was honored with the most recent in 2016.

The Type Directors Club
was formed in 1946 in New York City and is a professional organization dedicated to educating its international membership and the graphic arts and design communities about the value of typography in communication.

About the Project
Bestiary is the product of a long fascination with Greek mythology and early 19th Century photography. Based on a set of mostly hybrid creature descriptions and influenced by religious iconography, myth comes full circle and meets social criticism by molding these more here.


WIRED magazine describes The Bolted Book by Fortunato Depero as "one of the world's most iconic design books. Michael Bierut calls it a "totemic thing” for designers.

Published in 1927 in an edition of fewer than 1,000 copies, this book is celebrated for its daring experiments in typography, its innovative ideas about design practice, and its reinvention of the concept of the printed book.

The museum that holds the Depero archives is collaborating on a Kickstarter to publish an exact copy of the book. TDC members are being given the opportunity to receive this special book at a special price.

The Kickstarter project creator is Designers & Books. If you have any questions about the Bolted Book offer, you can reach them at
