If You Love the Feel and Look of a Book...

From The Economist, a story about Matthew Carter

Don't worry if the name is totally unfamiliar . He's a type designer and a recipient of a MacArthur Genuis grant.

"Mr Carter sits near the pinnacle of an elite profession. No more than several thousand type designers ply the trade worldwide, only a few hundred earn their keep by it, and only several dozens—most of them dead—have their names on the lips of discerning aficionados."
