Like last year’s event there will be a Dalston Type safari, where intrepid letter-hunters can trawl east London’s kebab and hipster-strewn environs for interesting characters in both senses, creating a phrase from their chosen letters that they feel sums up the area.
Other highlights include a brilliant-sounding discussion of type through album covers, exploring the likes of ACDC, Pulp and punk through a typographic viewpoint.
Those looking for a little gift for letter-loving pals can also explore the goods on offer at the weekend’s pop-up shop, which will sell items including screen printed posters, postcards and glow in the dark fairground letter prints.
The Type Tasting Open Studios weekend runs from 7 -8 June at Studio F7, Chocolate Factory, Farleigh Place, Stoke Newington, London N16. Find out more on the website http://typetastingnews.com/2014/05/20/summer-typography-talks/, Twitter: @TypeTasting and Facebook: /TypeTasting pages
