Font Wars blog now online

Everybody knows about Gutenberg, but how many people know about Stanley Morison, the legendary type designer who created Times New Roman.

Explore kerning, baselines, character widths and all the other technical considerations of modern document fraud with some of the world's leading typography authorities on Jules Siegel's Font Wars blog.

Although the reconstructed Bush Guard memos have been exposed, the search continues for the original documents that Marian Carr Knox, Killian's secretary, says she remembers typing. Today, Font Wars is looking at an authentic Pentagon memo written by George W. Bush and endorsed by Jerry B. Killian. Will the others look like this? If so, how was this document created?

As you'll see, we have contributions from Adobe's Thomas Phinney and other folks with awesome expertise in the art, technique and history of digital typography.

I'm hoping that this very specialized blog will evolve into a general gathering place for people who love type. This is all so exciting that my little heart is going pitter-pat. Kerning on the Evening News? I never thought I'd see that in my lifetime. I mean, it never even occurred to me. How could it?
