The AGM Lecture: Letters from Scotland
Following the business meeting, there were related talks from Robbie Schneider of the Scottish Lettercutters Association and an elected member of Letter Exchange, and from Susie Leiper FSSI.
Both gave us fascinating insights into their approaches and showed interesting slides of their work. Robbie revels in the three-dimensional nature of letter cutting and likes to exhibit relatively informal work. Susie spoke of the wealth of inspiration to do with lettering of all sorts available in Edinburgh, and showed a wide range of examples.
