The Festival Of The Imagination 1996 badge

Swancon 21 badge
Swancon 1996 membership badge for Doug Burbidge

Clearly the problem with previous Swancons was that their names were not long enough, and The Festival Of The Imagination rectified this problem in spades. (Swancon 17 was also subtitled The Festival Of The Imagination, so really it’s more of A Festival Of The Imagination.)

The art on the left of the badge is by Shaun Tan. Very nice. Still in a plastic badge holder; still landscape.

Again with the preferred name in a larger size; again with the high contrast and a nicely readable font. Palatino Linotype I’m guessing.
