Chicago, IL: Chicago Design Archive / Society of Typographic Arts

Visit: Met Jack Weiss, President of the Society of Typographic Arts.

We attended the opening of the annual exhibition of the STA Chicago Design Archives. They have been collecting for years, and have an annual competition. 

Jack was responsible for salvaging some of the old American Center for Design archives when that organization closed.

Jack ran something called “Design Index” back in the 80s. They were not able to get enough support from academic libraries to continue, and it folded.
