Thursday is a day for exploration, punctuated by a reception and the opening talk. Friday, a series of presentations and conversations—with plenty of time for questions . . . and comments. Full program and updates, here.
On Thursday, Oct. 3, badge-holders can sign up for studio visits at Thirst (with Rick Valicenti) and Starshaped Press (Jen Farrell). A Type Walk (with Paul Shaw) and a tour of Printer’s Row (with Jackson Cavanaugh). And a special look at the Design Museum of Chicago (with Tanner Woodford).
In the evening, a reception (with some deep-dish pizza for the out-of-towners), sponsored by Google Fonts. And then the opening talk by Paul Shaw.
On Friday a single track of presentations, with time for questions and comments, moderated by Susan Mango Curtis. Program runs 9:00 am to 6:00 pm with a 90-minute lunch break.
