This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

"the people of the book," Jews have always valued text and learning. But did you know that Jews were also innovators in the design and typography of all kinds of printed materials? In conjunction with Voices & Visions™ , join art historian Daniel Belasco for a wide-ranging presentation of Jewish graphic design highlights — from the Talmud to Milton Glaser — including discussion of how visual culture activates contemporary engagement with Jewish identity.
