Born in Stargard, Pomerania, in 1940, he was the technical director and their cofounder of URW Software&Type GmbH in Hamburg (URW stands for Unternehmensberatung Rubow Weber, after the first two of the founders, Rubow and Weber [Karow being the third one], and was succeeded by URW++), and developed the Ikarus program for font design. Since 1988, Karow and Zapf cooperated on the hz program for micro-typography of texts. Karow published Digitale Schriften. Darstellung und Formate (1992, Springer, Berlin), Digital Typefaces (Springer, 1994), Typeface Statistics (URW Verlag, Hamburg, 1993), and Font Technology (Springer, 1994), and is an expert in font technology. In 2013, DTL published Karow's booklet Digital Typography & Artificial Intelligence. In 2003, he was the first recipient of the Dr. Peter Karow Award established by DTL to honor people with extraordinary and innovative achievements in the field of font-related technology.
