École supérieure d’art et de design d’Amiens
The bicentenary of the first sans serif typeface, shown in 1816 in a specimen of the foundry of William Caslon IV, was the pretext to initiate an international conference about the history, the design and the use of sans serif letterforms. This cross-disciplinary, free event is accompanied by two substantial exhibitions: Traits lettres bâtons and Pangramme: learning type design.
