American Type Design is a history waiting to be assembled. Very few people know much about it, and what is known is relatively scattered. So what’s the big picture like?

Type Americana is a gathering of historians, designers and letterpress printers. It’s also the first conference in recent memory to focus exclusively on American Type Design history.

Type Americana 2012 takes place over three days. You’ll hear from the experts about some of our country’s greatest type designers and foundries. You’ll also get to participate in one of two hands-on workshops that will challenge you to design your own type or carve and print your own wood engraving, using our 19th century handpress.
