On the 29th and 30th September 2012, the Jack the Ripper Conference comes to the historic city of York. Planning for this event is well underway, with the official website due for launch within the next week or so. Speakers have now been finalised, the venues for the conference and the evening meal have been arranged, and online booking for the event will soon be going live. The graphic design for the event and for the lavish pack that each delegate will receive, is being produced by Andrew Firth, author and photographer of "Past Traces" and "Fragments of the East End". A taster of this graphic work can be seen above. With written content by Jennifer Shelden, the delegates pack is shaping up very nicely, and should provide those in attendance this coming Autumn, with a worthy souvenir.
The website will be announced here shortly, but in the meantime, there is a 2012 Jack the Ripper Conference Facebook page here.
