      March 9, 2004 -- APHA-NY

      Justin Howes, Type Designer, Typographer and Curator of The Type Museum
      "Typographical Monstrosities: The Grotesque in Nelson's England"
      The Grolier Club
      47 East 60th Street
      New York, NY
      6 p.m. Free and open to the public.

      Justin Howes will give an account of the fierce debates which greeted the
      appearance of sans serif letterforms on London posters and store-fronts
      between 1803 and 1805. On this subject, Howes says "the topic emerged as a
      result of hunting down Updike's 1918 joke about the 'Fashionable Egyptian
      Sign-boards' that had quite shocked polite taste in London a century
      earlier. Howes is a British typographer, type designer and historian.
