The 2015 Los Angeles Printer's Fair is this upcoming weekend. I won't be able to go (I'm back in Boston!), but I remember talking about it at a previous meet-up and some people being interested. I thought this would be a good way to let people know that it's happening. [more inside]
I'm in town to visit the C.C. Stern Type Foundry's Museum of Metal Typography which is having a Hot Metal Open House. Museum volunteers will demonstrate the process of making type for letterpress printing from hot metal. Anyone want to join? I'm going to show up near the beginning at 1 p.m. Suggested donation is $5.
I'm wildly excited to be attending TypeCon 2013 here in Portland, and would be even more excited if there are other Mefites also in attendance. Between Wednesday & Thursday's workshops and the mess of presentations Friday through Sunday, this thing seems ripe with opportunity for drinks, discussion, and diatribes on dingbats. [more inside]
