David Carson's typography ushered in a new vision of type and page design in the 1990s—breaking the traditional mold of type on a page and demanding fresh eyes from the reader. Squishing, smashing, slanting, and enchanting the words in a layout, Carson made the point, over and over, that letters on a page are art.

His first book, written with Lewis Blackwell and including a foreword by David Byrne, was The End of Print. Others include the magisterial Book of Probes, an exploration of the thinking of Marshall McLuhan, and the latest, Trek, a collection of his recent work.

This program is free and open to the public. If you would like to support programs like this, please donate any amount online (choose the "exhibitions and visiting artists & scholars" option).
