FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

LUC DEVROYE


ABOUT







Ed Cleary

Coauthor with Jürgen Siebert and Erik Spiekermann of The FontBook, published by FontShop International in 1998, with additions and updates in the following years. Robert Stacey situates Cleary in the history of Canadian design [because Cleary lived and died in Toronto], when he talks about the 1980s: Typographic design integrity continues to be defended, meanwhile, against trendiness and clutter by such private-press and fine-printing luminaries as Coach House Printing's Stan Bevington, Hemlock Press's David Clausen, Giampa Textware Corp.'s Gerald Giampa, Imprimerie Dromadaire's Glenn Goluska, Dreadnaught Design's Robert MacDonald, Canadian Art's John Ormsby, Aliquando Press's Will Rueter, and the late Ed Cleary, of the venerable Cooper&Beatty Typographers and the more recent Font Shop. As their work serves to remind us, the "democratization" of type and print through desktop publishing software and hardware, and the attendant access of thousands of typefaces, increases rather than decreases the need for taste, discernment and restraint to be brought to bear on the management of textual and visual materials.
