"Grunge" type designer Carlos Segura will be speaking at a special FREE engagement at Theater Artaud in San Francisco on Tuesday June 25. You must make reservations by calling (212) 675-4176. Segura, co-founder of T-26 type foundry says, ``Typography is beyond letters. Some fonts are so decorative, they almost become 'visuals' and when put in text form, they tell a story beyond the words--a canvas is created by the personality of the collection of words on the page.''
