Tomorrow I’ll be flying to San Francisco for the 2018 American Typecasting Fellowship (ATF) conference, hosted this year by M&H Type and the Arion Press. I expect most of the usual gang to be there, with presentations about old systems for casting type for letterpress and stories (both horror and successful) about keeping the old craft alive in the modern age. There will probably be some ATF people based on the West coast whom I haven’t met before as well.
Previous ATF conferences I’ve attended have been in Auburn NY (2016), Salem NH (2014), Portland OR (2012), Piqua OH (2010), and Grafton IL (2008).
I hope to have a report in this blog of some of the activities in a more timely manner than in 2016!
