Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: Historical Infographics with Professor Michael Stoll

Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall , A404 66 West 12th Street , New York, NY 10011

In this talk, Michael Stoll, professor of information design at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany, will share some examples from his collection of vintage information graphics. He will take you on a journey to rather unknown and unusual pieces reaching back to times when art and design were one. Examples will include historic flap books as well as cellophane-layered graphics and birds-eye city maps.

NOTE: Participants are asked to bring a laser pointer (yes, like the kind used for meetings and presentations) if they have one for a fun little experiment.

**Please RSVP on either Meetup or Eventbrite (not both).**
