From CreativePro.com –Stepping Through Historical Seattle on a Typographic Pub Crawl:
When I found out that the annual North American typography conference, TypeCon, was going to be in my hometown of Seattle, I decided to create a conference event that would somehow provide a unique experience to typographers from out-of-town.

You can also add specific resources to the Swatches, Brushes, Symbols…
