Venez les rencontrer, les écouter, échanger avec eux dans la bonne humeur. Goodies typographiques et graphiques sur place.
Quelques épisodes de la série Safari Typo seront présentés en compagnie de Thomas Sipp. Huit épisodes dans la jungle typographique de Paris, Londres, Berlin, Barcelone, Marseille, Amsterdam ou encore Montréal…
Les affiches Air Poster seront présentes. Achat sur place des 5 saisons. Air poster est né de l’envie de produire ponctuellement des formes hors du cadre de la commande, de donner corps à des idées, des envies, pour le plaisir de la recherche graphique et plastique, pour prendre l’air.
Une “popup” Boutique Typofonderie sera présente avec des surprises jamais encore dévoilées sur le site web.
