Description

Downtown Boston Type Walk

Hosted by Paul Shaw

Join the entertaining Paul Shaw for one of two leisurely walks through parts of historic Boston. This walk will take you around Downtown Boston and the waterfront area. The oldest part of Boston, the walk will include much 19th century lettering as well as excellent examples of lettering from the Art Deco era. Among the businesses with interesting lettering will be newspapers, merchant houses, transportation companies, and government agencies. As a bonus, this area includes some studios and businesses of such graphic design and printing notables as the Barta Press, T.M. Cleland, W.A. Dwiggins, T.B. Hapgood, the Heintzemann Press, Lincoln & Smith Printers, the Plimpton Press, D.B. Updike of The Merrymount Press, and the paper company S.D. Warren.

Walk co-sponsored by Legacy of Letters.
