Robert Bringhurst

American-born poet, book designer, typographer, historian and linguist, now resident in Canada. His 1992 book The Elements of Typographic Style (now in its second edition) became a instant classic. In 1993 he delivered the American Printing History Association’s Lieberman Lecture at UCLA; in 1997, the University of Iowa’s annual Brownell Lecture on the History of the Book; in 1998 the Georg Svensson Lecture at the Royal Library, Stockholm; and in 2001, the culminating lecture of the San Francisco Zapfest.
