TypeCon 2006, Boston: Part 0

Modern Pastry Shop sign, Boston.

Just arrived in Boston yesterday for TypeCon 2006. While walking along the famous Freedom Trail, I snapped this photo of a great vintage sign. Scooby seems to like it, too. (By the way, if you walk on the Freedom Trail the wrong direction, should it be called the Tyranny Trail?)

Update, Febrary 2013: I never got around to writing more about TypeCon 2006. Sorry about that. It was pretty great. I did a short presentation about Adrian Frutiger (who was awarded the SOTA Award that year) and the folks from Bitstream did a musical number about Bitstream typefaces in the fashion of Gilbert and Sullivan.
