Scripps College Humanities Auditorium

Ernst Schneidler was one of the most influential and beloved teachers of the letter arts in the twentieth century, whose students included Georg Trump, Albert Kapr, Imre Reiner, Walter Brudi, and Rudo Spemann. This talk will present a rich selection of the calligraphy, type design and book design of Schneidler and his students in a high definition show and tell from the collection of the Letterform Archive.

Rob Saunders has been collecting letterforms and design for forty years, while pursuing a career as a calligrapher, designer, teacher, publisher, and consultant. He taught at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at Tufts University, and recently founded the Letterform Archive to share his collection with fellow designers.

Please note that Frederic W. Goudy Lectures are free and open to the public.
