This series of short talks and conversations will explore the macro and micro issues of typography in news, from the molecular level — breaking down the details that make a text face readable — to the big picture of how typefaces combine to give a publication its voice and personality, and how that voice can be extended from print to digital media. Hailing from Italy, Lebanon, and New York, the speakers will present a diverse set of viewpoints around how we read.
