Decriminalising Ornament: The Pleasures of Pattern


  • Angela Ruskin University Cambridge UK (map)

This year's Illustration Research Symposium seeks to draw together a range of perspectives on ornament and ornamentation, and its close relatives pattern and the decorative, to explore the resilience, continued value, significance, application, and creation of these cultural forms; celebrating their centrality within human life and cultural production, both past and present, and (speculatively), the future.

Graham will be presenting a short paper on Elizabeth Friedlander, her journey, her typefaces and her designs.
