Evolution of the architecture of letterforms, in Girona


I was invited by the Col·legi Oficial de Disseny Gráfic de Catalunya to give a lecture on the subject the book and the letter, knowledge and technology in the Girona House of Culture. Besides me, Carme Clusellas, director of the museo de Arte de Girona gave a great review of the evolution of the book as a medium.

This event was organized to promote the PhD project by Cristina Simón and Cristina Florez, which digitalized an old medieval sample of lettering from a carpet in the Cathedral of Girona. The development of the Letra Damassiana has been widely documented on their website. I had the pleasure of being technical consultant.
