A free, public lecture on how letters got on the eye chart and what they’re doing there by Professor William Germano, author of the recently published Eye Chart (Blooomsbury). The book traces the history of the eye chart as a medical test, work of graphic design and metaphor. Registration is requested.
William Germano is professor in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of The Cooper Union. He was dean of that faculty from 2006 until 2017.
This lecture is part of the Herb Lubalin Lecture Series of Type@Cooper. The series is sponsored by the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography at The Cooper Union, a public graphic design archive which places emphasis on a hands-on access to a wide range of design and typography ephemera. Recordings of the events are posted to Vimeo thanks to a generous sponsorship from Hoefler & Company.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
