Have you ever wandered around Green-Wood and been curious about the letters and numbers carved in stone? There are thousands of unique designs found throughout the Cemetery from nearly two centuries of memorialization. Here’s your chance to sharpen your eye and make your Green-Wood strolls even more rewarding. For this evening’s exploration, Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman is joined by Angela Voulangas and Doug Clouse, graphic and exhibition designers, type historians, teachers, who work together as The Graphics Office and have both served on the board of directors of the Type Directors Club. They co-wrote The Handy Book of Artistic Printing and Doug is the author of MacKellar, Smith & Jordan: Typographic Tastemakers of the Late Nineteenth Century. One of their passions is gravestone inscriptions—they will share that passion with you.
$5/Free for members. This conversation is part of our new series of virtual programs about the history of Green-Wood and its permanent residents, Zooming in on History.
