They order these things better in France

The photograph below records the entrance space at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, last week, where Robin Kinross gave a ‘confĂ©rence’ on the occasion of the publication of the French edition of Modern typography. He also took part in a radio discussion for France Culture, to be broadcast at lunchtime on 28 May. Such serious attention in the public realm to typography is unusual. In the Anglo-Saxon world, it’s unheard of.

Update (28.05.2012). The France Culture discussion is here.
