Dan Solo - Type Hero

Dan Solo is a living treasure in America. When using one of his rescued types for the up-tenth time,  I decided to look around on the internet for him, and of course found him. This is his  biography. I think it is a good read. He teaches, through his amazing collection, the language of alphabet and typography. A language that is lanquishing........... (not bad - huh?)

...And certainly seek out his fonts on MyFonts and Dover - He is the master. I will need to give the link, as I realize that the bio was not pasting in the blog:


  1. What an interesting person. He is a treasure reservoir of fonts.

  2. Dan just passed away in May of this year. He was a great person and the world is a little less interesting now that he has left us.
