The many styles and varieties of public lettering in Ripon will be the subject of the next talk to Ripon Civic Society, which takes place on Thursday 3 September.

The talk will be given by Paul Kershaw, a wood engraver and handpress printer who lives in Ripon and is a member of the Society. He has a particular interest in lettering, and will discuss how it is used in and around the city.

David Winpenny, Chairman of Ripon Civic Society, says, ‘Paul has a great eye for design and lettering, and he will open our eyes to aspects of how we use lettering in public in Ripon. It is sure to be a fascinating and illuminating talk.’

Everyone is welcome to the talk, which takes place at 7.30 pm on Thursday 3 September at Allhallowgate Methodist Church Hall, Victoria Grove, Ripon. There is a charge of £3.00 for anyone who is not a Civic Society member.
