Typographical journeys

ATypI 2006: Lisbon, Portugal

Association Typographique Internationale’s 50th ATypI annual conference was held from 27 September to 1 October 2006 in Lisbon, Portugal, at Universidade de Lisboa Faculdade de Belas Artes. The conference theme was ‘Typographical Journeys’.

Built on seven hills and touched by ocean breezes, the Portuguese capital is a centre of cultural diversity with a laid-back feel and filled with architectural treasures. Lisbon is one of the most enjoyable cities in Europe and the ideal location to host the premier conference for the international type community.

Conference retrospective

Detailed PDF schedules of the ATypI Lisbon conferenceare are available: for the TypeTech Forum (119 KB) and for the Main Conference (1.6 MB).

For the first time in a decade, we did not produce an on-site and web newsletter this year: our volunteer team was busy or exhausted. But ATypI delegates are a loquacious lot and pictures and commentary are appearing around the web. We'll attempt to collect most of them here.

If you have blogged or shot or reported on the conference, please let us know and we will set a link.
