Exciting Multi-Generational Moment



I come from a long line of designers: my great-grandmother was an art teacher, my maternal grandparents were trained at Pratt in graphic and industrial design and my mother is a graphic designer and historian. At age 10 or so, I learned how to work a typositor. We even have a namesake typeface, Scotford Uncial. Our professional spheres have overlapped just a few times, but today they coincide: an essay and slideshow on the design of James Joyce’s Ulysses by my mother, Martha Scotford, appears on Design Observer, where I was recently made a contributing writer. I should have something on DO myself later this week…
