Charles Nix — "WWJD? (What Would Justus Do?)"
TDC Salon, September 20, 2018, NYC
Messages from the dead! Mystical communication across two centuries! International intrigue! Typographic treasures guarded by a network of biblio-zealots! A massive cabal! A plot so colossal no less than 90 collaborators involved! A Corsican invader! Genius hampered by Emperor Napoleon! German Romance! The Caspar David Friedrich of type!
Behold! An illustrated lecture! Join Charles Nix for an extensive look at Justus Erich Walbaum—the 250-year-old Modern man!
NOTE: This version of the presentation is pre-recorded, and not the live version of the TDC salon itself. Crisp and clean for your enjoyment.
Charles Nix is a designer, typographer, and educator. He is a Type Director at Monotype, where he, Carl Crossgrove, and Juan Villanueva designed the 69-font Walbaum family, released in June 2018.
