As part of the celebrations, we created a limited edition tote for Type, which will only be available at the event (Leanne Shapton also designed one, which is exciting!). This was a really fun one to design, as I was able to look to my very first love, books, for inspiration. We ended up going with the title of the incredible Flannery O’Connor short story “Everything That Rises Must Converge.” I recently (not an English major over here!) discovered that the title of the story was taken from another story, “Omega Point” by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and it made me appreciate it all the more: “Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.”
If you’re in Toronto, I hope you’ll make it out and show Type some love!
