PRESENTATION BY JASON DEAN
“THE WORK OF CARL HERTZOG: BEARING WITNESS TO THE WESTERN WORD”
Thursday, April 5
Carl Hertzog defined the look of Texas, and west Texas in his work. This talk aims to explore some of the most important work Hertzog produced in collaboration with Texas and western authors – Tom Lea, John Graves, J. Frank Dobie, and J. Evetts Haley. Specifically we will discuss design elements, collaboration, and typographic choices in the work of Hertzog.
