Allan Haley, Director of Words and Letters at Monotype Imaging, will crown the "Typophile of the Year" here in Memphis in a couple of weeks. I’ve linked a blurb from Fast Company mentioning this. I’m looking forward to seeing some of you in this funky little town.

Anyone serious about winning this quiz should study their old copies of U&lc, as well as any material they have on Dwiggins.

Allan, didn't you just crown Tom Phinney "Typophile of the Year" a couple of months ago in Atlanta? That was a short year! ;-)
