Typesetters play in important role in book design and production. Sonya Murphy will talk about the history of the industry in Australia. How it transferred from a male-dominated hot-metal trade to today’s technology. Explaining how books are designed, she will discuss how the font use, size, number of pages, etc are all determined.
Parking is available down the side of the building. If you are travelling by public transport there is a tram stop nearby, and Glenferrie Station is just a couple of tram stops away.
After the meeting, we will go to a local restaurant for a meal (at own expense).
