Font Detective, Extra Bold

  • Harrington College of Design 200 West Madison Street Chicago, IL 60606 (map)

Thomas Phinney discusses and shows evidence from several of the cases he has been called into as a typographic consultant, including a forged will, legislated point size requirements, a seemingly fake rabbi, and the forged documents about President Bush's National Guard service. Attendees will learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries.
