History: Heros and Sheros

The readings for Tuesday are largely about design and typographic history.

Here are two sites that might fit well in discussion: Thinking Form, a collection of stories about the ‘men of modern design,’ (almost no women) and Letterform Archive, a nonprofit library and museum, in San Francisco, dedicated to inspiration and education in the letter arts. Simran Thadani, who earned her PhD at UPenn, has been the Executive Director since 2015.
