History of the Johnston Type Face image

HAT archive contributor Mike Ashworth is giving an illustrated talk about the London Underground Johnston typeface next week on Tuesday, 3rd April.  More details in the pdf below and on the Sign Design Society website.  Followers of this site are eligible for a small discount, just make sure you quote ‘ghostsigns’ when you email enquiries@signdesignsociety.co.uk to book your place.

This is part of an ongoing talks and events programme which, back in 2010, also featured a session on ghostsigns.  The SDS website lists these, including a major event being staged to coincide with the olympic year in London.
