RE: [PPLetterpress] Dante Pro available
- Dr Mardersteig was not just a printer (and book and type designer) "of
remarkable skill", as is written on that web page-he truly was a brilliant

Would they have redrawn the outlines of the new Pro fonts at Monotype
Imaging, as they did with Bembo Book Pro? At the Stamperia Valdonega, which
is now lead by Mardersteig's son, Martino, they use their own digital
revival of the Dante founts, which unfortunately is not released to public.

and is much superior to the Monotype version. Also, it is based on the
foundry metal original, not Monotype's hot metal version."
