At Strand Books in NYC on June 26, 2014, Ellen Lupton and her students from MICA spoke about the book they wrote, Type on Screen: A Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Developers, and Students, available now from Princeton Architectural Press.

One of the surprise hits of our Fall 2012 season is The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era. Photographer Robert Burley’s moving visual account of the abandonment and destruction of film-based photography has really struck a chord with readers and critics. The Globe and Mail just called it “an elegant, often elegiac book." Watching the book’s recently released trailer, it’s easy to see why.

The video comes from Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz, publisher of the original German-language edition, Generative Gestaltung. If you enjoy this glimpse into the book, get your hands on the beautiful English-language edition, available only from PAPress.
