Chapman University and Wilkinson College’s Department of Art is pleased to showcase the Photo-Lettering archives and typefaces from one of the leading type foundries and design studios in America, House Industries.
Photo-Lettering or PLINC was one of the earliest and most successful type houses to utilize photo technology in the production of commercial typography and lettering. Numerous artifacts chronicling PLINC’s development are exhibited such as original specimen books, catalogs and films with Photo-Lettering founder Ed Rondthaler and longtime Photo-Lettering art director Ed Benguiat. Chapman is pleased to host the first West-Coast exhibition showcasing its history
Admission is free and the exhibit is running everyday this week from noon to 5 p.m. in the Guggenheim Gallery.
