I enjoyed this profile of typographers Tobias Frere-Jones and Jonathan Hoefler in the New York Times.
"Tobias and I were probably the only two people under 14 who subscribed to U&lc," Mr. Hoefler said, referring to a magazine, Upper & Lower Case, published by the International Typeface Corporation.I love it!
And, yes, Tobias Frere-Jones is related to Sasha Frere-Jones, the New Yorker music critic. They're brothers. (Do not confuse them.)
And although the type designers were born six days apart, I don't think they have anything to do with Six Apart.
