Guild of Natural Science Illustrators Annual Conference in Bar Harbor

At the GNSI annual conference I did a presentation on a long time favorite subject of mine: the combination of words/text and calligraphy/computer typefaces with science illustrations. The presentation is entitled “The 26 Letters in Science Illustration” and the slideshow is available here. I spoke of the history of the alphabet and the evolution of combining words and images; the presentation also analyzes current science illustrations that include text or identification names.
