Thomas Phinney presents his clues and conclusions from several cases he has been called into as a font detective, including a forged will, legislated point size requirements, a seemingly fake rabbi, an NFL Hall of Fame induction, and documents about President Bush’s National Guard service. Learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries! Learn more about Thomas’ upcoming talks here.
