Gary Munch has been captured by type and letterforms for years. Hand-setting in college, internalizing the ducti for Latin scripts, picking and clicking in Fontographer, then FontLab, he still sees type as a device for communication first. For some time he has been teaching in the wilds of Connecticut's Fairfield County, coaxing others to see how type and text works and looks best. He was on the board of the TDC 2000-2008, and made Candara in collaboration with the Clear Type team at Microsoft, and Ergo & Really for Linotype (now Monotype). His website is madly out of date.
