The fourth edition of the TypeAmsterdam symposium will be held on November 27 at Bijzondere Collecties UvA. I attended the previous one in 2012 and really enjoyed it; this year I was, excitingly, invited to speak. My talk is titled “Journey to the Dark Side of Contrast” and concerns itself with sense and nonsense of reversed-contrast typefaces – speaking from my own experience making one. Registration (for a symbolic fee) is open at the event website. (Don’t worry if you don’t speak Dutch: The conference is in English.)
