Apologies, but the first call for papers went out with the incorrect date.
The St Bride Conference will, of course, take place on 18 & 19 October 2004
and NOT 2001 as originally advertised!

The Friends of St Bride Printing Library
Third Annual Conference
18 & 19 October 2004
B A D T Y P E
You are invited to submit papers that take a walk on the typographic wild
side, which explore not what is lofty, proper and good in the graphic arts,
but that which is *mad, bad and dangerous to know*.
*Bad Type* may be interpreted as that which does not fit with convention and
could include work created by typographic dissidents and revolutionaries, or
material used for rebellious or seditious purposes. Bad type might deal with
work that purposely disobeys normal typographic customs to achieve wayward
ends or it may cover material created to facilitate naughty, mischievous or
roguish purposes. It could also include the curious work of amateurs with no
particular design talents. The theme of *Bad Type* may be applied to
individuals, their work, the purpose behind their work or the processes used
to produce it.
If you have a topic that does not fit the typographic norm, then we would be
delighted to hear from you.
We are looking not only for Conference speakers, but also for people who
might wish to exhibit material or who would like to create graphic or
art-installations on the theme of *Bad Type*.
Please send an outline of your proposed talk/exhibition/installation in not
more than 300 words to:

Closing date: 1 February 2004
