Lange interview at new-series.org
- Andrew Crewdson, owner of new-series.org, a site dedicated to type,
letterforms and their history, has posted an interview with this
group's irrepressible co-moderator, Gerald Lange. There are
interesting observations on polymer plate, trends in letterpress
printing, and digital type, as well as hints of an upcoming book from
the Bieler Press. All in all, an interesting read!
Here is Andy's announcement:

Oh, it's a story that's been told before.
Haven't done an interview in over a decade but was honored when Andy asked. I have a lot of respect for what he is trying to do. But I was just trying to follow his lead with this and address his questions as directly and as fully as I could.
Pleased you thought well of it.
