This continues the "dig" of digital type archaeology from the Seybold Report. Viewed now, more than 33 years later, these texts and illustrations not only offer a view of the state of knowledge of digital typography at the time of publication but also indicate what Bigelow and Holmes were studying as the concept of what became the Lucida font family began to take form in our studio, two and a half years before the first release of Lucida in September, 1984.
This installment is from The Seybold Report of February 8, 1982. As for the previous articles, Chuck Bigelow wrote the text, Kris Holmes prepared the illustrations, and Jonathan Seybold edited the article, and also added an afterword pointing to the next and concluding installment.
