Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate

Join us to discuss our March virtual book club selection, Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate by Carolyn Porter.

A true story of graphic designer Carolyn Porter, who stumbled across a bundle of letters while searching antique stores for inspiration to create a new font. As she struggled to design the font, she searched for information about the man who had written these letters during World War II and clues to what had become of him.

Book club will begin with a showcase of typography in the rare book collections, followed by a discussion of the book.

Free and open to all.
