Type Tuesday: TypeCon 2011

UPPERCASE is pleased to be a 12pt sponsor of the upcoming Society of Typographic Aficionados' TypeCon to be held July 5-10 in New Orleans.

"Presentations and workshops will explore topics such as: Japanese typography; the champions of readability; typography for the web; the graphic history behind QSL cards; book design and bookbinding; Fontographer basics; letterpress techniques; connections between lettering and lingerie; historic New Orleans print engraving; the lack of Latin typographic heritage in Turkey; glass gliding; and so much more."

Unfortunately, my schedule is too full to attend this year, but I am looking for an UPPERCASE correspondent to send us news, photos and reviews from the conference! Your contributions will be posted on the blog.

Please leave your credentials in the comments (links to your portfolio, blog and relevant urls) with a couple of sentences about why you'd like to attend. The chosen correspondent will receive a complimentary conference pass (please note that all other expenses such as transportation, accommodation, food, etc are the responsibility of the correspondent.)
