Handselecta “Flip The Script” Talk at the Type Directors Club TONIGHT

Christian Acker of Handselecta will be speaking at the Type Directors Club tonight about the art of graffiti handstyle and his new book which we previewed in Issue 52 of Mass AppealFlip the Script: A Guidebook for Aspiring Vandals and Typographers by examines the art of graffiti handstyle and the development of the artform in different regions; Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and the Northwest.

This project began a decade ago by working with writers like Sabe and Espo to create complete fonts from their uniquely recognizable handstyles. It has evolved over the years to include alphabets from some of the most legendary writers from the history of graffiti (i.e. Taki 183 and Stay High 149) to bombers making a name for themselves on the streets today.

Head to the Type Directors Club website to purchase tickets to tonight’s event.
