ABOUT







Dr. Peter Karow Award

The Dr. Peter Karow Award for Font Technology&Digital Typography is an initiative of the Dutch Type Library. At the third DTL FontMaster Conference on the 18th of November 2003 in Castle Maurick in the Netherlands, the first Dr. Peter Karow Award for Font Technology&Digital Typography was presented. This prize is awarded yearly to people with extraordinary and innovative achievements in the field of font-related technology and consists of a certificate, a facsimile of the 42-line Gutenberg bible and DTL FontMaster for Mac OS and Windows.

  • The first award was given in 2003 to Dr. Peter Karow himself.
  • In 2009, the second award was given to Thomas Milo for the development of the ACE layout engine (the heart of the Tasmeem plugin for InDesign ME) for Arabic text setting.
  • In 2013, Don Knuth received the Peter Karow award for his development of TeX and Metafont. Large format pictures of the ceremony in Amsterdam taken by Luc Devroye: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII.
