Legacy of Aldus Manutius

OK, this link really freaked me out (thanks MetaFilter).

Aside from the amazing legacy Aldus Manutius bestowed on the world of print publishing I had the great priviledge of working for the company inspired by his name (see bottom of my blog bio).

I also had the honor of leading a great team of very talented people (in my corner of the world) into battle during the digital Desktop Publishing Revolution of the late 80's / early 90's.

Way to go Aldus!

Ah yes . . . it was you and your team of young whipper-snappers that thought they knew everything. You made a software tool available to anyone with a computer. Damn you for all times (and helvetica).
