who think about type for a living, or at least a lot.
Thinking about something a lot makes you understand
and appreciate it more, but it also creates a strong
emotional attachment, reducing objectivity.
> Letterpress book >artists< mean anything to ya?You have a point. Those involved in letterpress can
probably be said to be generally more interesting in
"self-expression" that your typical typesetter, and
the higher-quality results are a great consequence
of that. But the question is, exactly who benefits
most from this particular kind of quality? Or really,
quality in general?
I see no problem with somebody making Art to enrich
his life (and that of others, although to a lesser
extent), as long as there's a healthy understanding
of its limits.
