A talk about typography: from ACDC to Pulp, through prog rock, grunge and punk... the typography on record covers reveal a great deal about the history and development of type, and also charts the evolution of popular culture. The talk takes place in the Type Tasting studio and is part of Open Studios weekend at the Chocolate Factory N16.

Sarah Hyndman set up Type Tasting in 2013. Since the launch she’s curated a mass participation Type Tasting exhibition at the V&A with the London Design Festival, been interviewed on Radio 4’s Today and recently took Type Tasting to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

Limited to 20 people. General interest, not just for designers.
