Pen to Printer 2007

The Edward Johnston Foundation’s Seventh Ditchling Annual International Seminar will take place over the weekend of 18/19/20 May 2007. The full programme appears below.

Ditchling lies in glorious Sussex countryside under the escarpment of the South Downs. The village was the home of Edward Johnston, Eric Gill and the community which was to make its name world-famous among those who value the tradition of fine letterforms. The EJF's annual international seminars are gaining a reputation as a relaxed and informal gathering for the widest spectrum of lettering interests.
