Event description

Description

This past fall, Princeton Architectural Press published Fifty Type Specimens from The Collection of Tobias Frere-Jones, a sampling from his library of 400+ type specimens. Tobias will recount the making of the collection, and will give a larger tour of the library, examining specimens as expressions of type as well as artifacts of commerce and culture.

Over 25 years, Tobias Frere-Jones has established himself as one of the world’s leading typeface designers, creating some of the most widely used typefaces, including Interstate, Poynter Oldstyle, Whitney, Gotham, Surveyor, Tungsten and Retina.

Tobias received a BFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992. He joined the faculty of the Yale University School of Art in 1996 and has lectured throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. His work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2006, Royal Academy of Visual Arts The Hague (KABK) awarded him the Gerrit Noordzij Prijs for his contributions to typographic design, writing and education. In 2013 he received the AIGA Medal in recognition of exceptional achievements in the field of design.
