TypeCon2006 in Boston is only 7 short days away and registration is still open for anyone that wants to join us!

It could be that the reason you haven’t considered attending this year is that you don’t have time to attend the entire conference. But we don’t want lack of time to keep you from joining in the typographic adventure of the summer! Did you know that you can register for single days? Did you also know you don’t need to register at all to attend the workshops which are being held at MassArt across town? Consider a half-day spent exploring one of these not to be missed workshops. Call it a field-trip and invite others from your office.

Jim Wasco and friends in their Glyph Kitchen exploring type in a variety of media; Ilene Strizner takes control to the next level in Gourmet Typography; Nancy Sharon Collins demonstrates Engraving, Social Stationary Engraving, and a Microcosmic View of History of Design & Typography; Keith Cross from Milk Row Studio leads a class of Letterpress and the Exquisite Corpse Poem as well as Letterpress & Tag-team Poster Art; Maryanne Grebenstein from The Abbey Studio leads an Introduction to Calligraphy and another on Illumination; Richard Lipton leads you in warm up exercises and Freeform Calligraphy; and last — but not least — Al Gowan shows cooking with leftovers in Letterpress and the Victorian Ransom Note.

Don’t forget, if you are in the Boston area and can make it TypeCon, registration is still open!
