Caryl Holland: “Type’s right-hand man”

Caryl Holland and Günter Gerhard Lange discuss trends, new technological developments, historic influences, the Berthold Library, and the reason why a computer can’t make any esthetic decisions.

“[…] I am a right-handed man […] and for me technology is the left hand. It is only a tool to help you prepare and produce a character more quickly. We use computers for corrections and for producing series when building a new alphabet but we always first draw the characters by hand and we always check the computer’s work by eye. […]”
