A partnership with SF Neon, Tenderloin Museum and the Letterform Archive

An exploration of matchbooks and neon sign design and typography that is a time-travel journey to the mid-century nightlife of San Francisco. Vintage matchbook covers and historic neon signs are a fascinating synecdoche of the small businesses they represent, and a window to the past explored through material culture. This illustrated presentation will be hosted by Stephen Coles of the Letterform Aarchive, Katie Conry/Tenderloin Museum, and Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan/SF Neon. Get ready for a deep dive into the world of unique letter forms and design of matchbooks associated with legacy businesses and neon signs.
