Subject: desktop publishing, digital typography, etc., , a couple of pointers > From: Dave Walden Some of you will have seen issue 3 of 2018 of the Annals of the History of Computing on the history of desktop publishing. And a few of you may have read my interview with Charles Bigelow, who has lived and worked through much of the digital type revolution. There is a parallel interview at http://tug.org/TUGboat/tb39-3/tb123holmes-walden.pdf of Kris Holmes who is the other half of the Bigelow and Holmes Design Studio. See also http://tug.org/TUGboat/tb39-3/tb123walden-cary.pdf -- the Cary Collection with which Chuck and Kris are affiliated. The "web extras" page for the DTP special issue of the Annals -- continues to be updated -- https://history.computer.org/annals/dtp/ While TeX and LaTeX are just a tiny corner of the computing world, the TUG website (tug.org) does have some content that goes beyond TeX and may be useful for people researching the digital typography and DTP area of computing history; - the group's journal (http://tug.org/tugboat/contents.html) is now open access for all but the most recently published issue; look at book reviews, typography, etc., in the category list for high probability of finding topics closer to computing history. - the group's interview series (http://tug.org/interviews/) naturally looks backward (i.e., history); also there are lots of links to interviews of Knuth (http://tug.org/interviews/#knuth). By the way, Knuth has produced another massive computing/artistic effort outside the volumes of The Art of Computer Programming: https://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/fant.html Best wishes for 2019. _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
