The Drawing Room, a café and gallery in Observatory, Cape Town, is hosting a typography exhibition. It primarily features work by Alicia Mcfadzean (Cheeky Observer) but there are also (NSFW) pieces by South African comics creator Danielle Albertyn/Milo Wildcat and contributions by Keith Vlahakis.

Exhibition: Typo-Graffik, Cape Town

More on the exhibition: "This typography-focused exhibition celebrates the art of making language visible and highlights the use of type and sign writing in a metropolitan society. With hundreds of fonts available at anyone’s fingertips, knowledge and appreciation for the process in how lettering is formed needs to be prioritized and understood.

"With each draft, a new problem is solved and new ideas explored, allowing a simple idea to blossom into something magic. It is an immersive and nourishing process that allows creatives to think with more than their heads, but through their hands and body."

• When: Thursday, 14 September 2017, from 18:00 (opening night); Monday to Friday, 09:00 to 17:00; Saturday, 09:00 to 14:00; exhibition closing date unknown
• Where: The Drawing Room, 87 Station Road, Observatory, Cape Town, South Africa
• Cost: Free
