LETTERFORM ARCHIVE | The Font Detective & the California Cases with Thomas Phinney

Hosted/Organized by: Letterform Archive and San Francisco Public Library

Thomas Phinney may be the world’s only regular “font detective.” As a global expert on fonts, typography and printing, he does document forensics in legal cases around the world. The stakes can be fortune, fame, careers, imprisonment … or the family house. For this Letterform Lecture, Phinney discusses and shows evidence from several cases, including the Wicked Will, the Special Sack, and the Secret of the Certificate.
