Keynote speaker: Robert Bringhurst

This year, for the first time since the Vancouver conference in 2003, Robert Bringhurst will be among our keynote speakers. Those who have heard his sonorous renditions of Haida poetry or ancient Greek prose will know what an effective presence he can be; those who have read his books will know how intricately he interweaves ideas and the day- to-day world. For an introduction to the ATypI/Graphis book Language culture type, he invented a taxonomy of written language, which was later published on its own as the short book Solid Language. For each major speaking engagement, he makes a point of trying to create something new.
