John and Saki will show how these two projects came to fruition.=20

John Berry is an editor and typographer who works both sides of the design/content divide. He is the former editor of U&lc, and edited the book "Language Culture Type" (ATypI/Graphis, 2002). He writes regularly on type for Creativepro.com. He is a former member of the board of directors of TDC "Contemporary Newspaper Design" is a lively, highly visual study of the graphic evolution of some of the world's best-designed newspapers over the last fifteen years.

Saki Mafundikwa is a graphic designer, typographer, and design educator. He holds an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and worked and taught in New York City before returning to his country Zimbabwe to found that country=A1=AFs first graphic design and new media college, the Zimbabwe Institute of Vigital Arts (ZIVA). "Afrikan Alphabets" is an eye-opening introduction to the wealth of graphic writing systems, alphabetic and otherwise, that have been developed by Africans both throughout history and in comparatively recent times. The book is a visual feast, both descriptive and very personal.

We hope to see you there!

With kind regards,

Mark Batty Publisher
