Type Walk with Paul Shaw: Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill



Type Walk with Paul Shaw: Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill

Event Description

Type Directors Club has asked Paul Shaw to give a walk tour through Downtown Brooklyn to view the remains of its architectural lettering past and find what is new. This designer and historian, who has been leading lettering tours since 1997, will show classical roman capitals, Art Deco, and geometric sans serifs on courthouses, schools, firehouses and other buildings; grotesque sans serifs on tenements, churches, and manhole covers; street signs; and vernacular lettering and ghost signs.
