A talk about typography: from ACDC to Pulp, through prog rock, grunge and punk… the typography on record covers reveal a great deal about the history and development of type, and also charts the evolution of popular culture. The talk takes place in the Type Tasting studio and is part of Open Studios weekend at the Chocolate Factory N16.
