When I began delving into the typographic past as part of my researches for a history of ATypI, and especially as I interviewed people whose memories stretched back into the association’s early days, I realized that I myself had been around long enough to have memories of my own that ought to be recorded. So I started writing, somewhat sporadically, my own typographic memoir. It’s still a work in progress.
These chapters have been published on Medium, a useful platform for such endeavors, but I decided that they ought to be available on my website, too, where it’s easier to find them all and to see how they fit together. (They will remain on Medium as well.)
None of this is necessarily final or finished. Memories seep to the surface when you least expect them. Corrections, additions, and other perspectives are always welcome.
