The annual Pen to Printer seminar is back after a break for our involvement with the London Transport Museum's 'Johnston Journeys' project celebrating the centenary of Edward Johnston's famous bull's eye roundel and Underground Sans typeface for London Transport. This year's event is taking a different format in that it will be a one-day session on Saturday 20th May 2017 with the option of attendance at at lecture on the Friday evening 19th May. Also there is a new venue which is Stoneywish Nature Reserve in Ditchling. The full programme is still in preparation but as usual it will bring together distinguished speakers and delegates from many lettering and associated disciplines to discuss in a convivial atmosphere issues of importance in today's rapidly-changing world of communications.
