The next type conference is approaching fast – ATypI Mexico – TYP09 "The Heart Of The Letter" – will be held in the School of Design of Anáhuac University from October 26 to 30, 2009 (indeed, roughly one month from now). This is a quick reminder that if you want to attend this year's ATypI conference you'd better not procrastinate. The very early registration ends tomorrow, after which the registration price will stop using the reduced rates and revert to the normal fees.
