DANSKING LIGATURE FESTIVAL
To tie in with ATypI's Copenhagen conference next month
(http://www.atypi.org/cph2001/), we're inviting people who design
letters, together with butchers and bakers, to create a ligature for our
amusement and delight.
The conference newsletter, Dansking, needs an sk ligature.
We're asking you to draw or make one for us and
bring it with you to Copenhagen
send us an image file (photograph, postscript, etc) of it
and we'll display them on the dansking web gallery, part of the ATypI
web site. If there's a physical object and it survives the conference
(see below) it will be auctioned at the famous ATypI auction (prop. D.
Farey) in aid of... whatever the auction is in aid of.
The object should be an sk ligature. You know what a ligature is, right?
The object should have some connection in its style, materials or
construction with Denmark, our host nation. In creating these rules, we
imagine you using famous Danish products as construction materials:
butter, bacon, pastry and Lego spring immediately to mind. If you are
thinking aquatically, please note: we insist that no mermaids be harmed
in the making of your ligature.
Electronic files must be sent to [log in to unmask] and may be in any
format. Matt enjoys a challenge.
Physical objects should be brought to the Dansking newsdesk at the
conference, where they will be photographed and/or eaten.
Please tell us who you are and add a sentence or so to describe your
creation. If the Danish connection is obscure, you may need to tell us
what it is.
(apologies if you have received this more than once)
