Type Specimen

Gaza frequens Libycos duxit Karthagos tripumphos. Zwei Boxkämpfer jagen Eva quer durch Sylt. Pchnąć w tę łódź jeża lub osiem skrzyń fig. Żywioł, jaźń, Świerk. Flygande bäckasiner söka strax hwila på mjuka tuvor. βρεγμένοι ξυλουργοί πίνουν ψηφιακό ζύθο χωρίς δισταγμό. В чащах юга жил был цитрус...—да, но фальшивый экземпляр!

By a Typographer, I do not mean a Printer, as he is Vulgarly accounted, any more than Dr Dee means a Carpenter or Mason to be an Architect: But by a Typopgrapher, I mean such a one, who by his own Judgment, from solid reasoning with himself, can either perform, or direct others to perform from the beginning to the end, all the Handy-works and Physical Operations relating to Typographie. -- Joseph Moxon

Typographia ars artium omnium conservatrix.

In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Sic erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt: et sine ipso factum est nihil, quod factum est: in ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat loannes. Hic venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera, quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit. In propria venit, et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum, dedit eis potestatem filios Dei fieri, his, qui credunt in nomine eius: qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. Et Verbum caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis: et vidimus gloriam eius, gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis. Deo gratias.

Inter scientias non minima est typographia. -- Johann Jakob von Weingarten

Typographia donum dei praestantissimum. -- Jean Temporarius

Die Buchdruckerei ist eine so edle und nützliche Kunst, daß man bei denen, welche sie ausüben, einen gewissen Grad von Kultur voraussetzen sollte. -- Johann Friedrich Unger

Live in your century, but do not be its creature. Do for your contemporaries that which they deserve, not that which they praise. -- Warren Chappell

Type design moves at the pace of the most conservative reader. -- Stanley Morison
