Estimados amigos y colegas

hace unos pocos días salió esta convocatoria en Atypi que puede ser de
interés para varios de ustedes. Se trata de una beca para el
conocimiento y formación en áreas relacionadas con el libro manual, o
sea aquél que se hace con técnicas tradicionales (impresión con tipos
móviles, caligrafía, encuadernación y elaboración de papel).

Las condiciones de becas son realmente muy buenas, la convocatoria sale
con tiempo (hay hasta el 15 de febrero para mandar trabajos) y como
ellos mismos dicen: les interesa ampliar sus "aproximaciones
multiculturales" , así que ¡anímense a participar!

un saludo cordial y mucha suerte
