The Little Trince, (bxvert What I love most about the revolution in electronic design and communi¬
cation is the explosion in the awareness of typography. People who, ten
years ago, didn't know there was more than one typeface in the world now
scrutinize menus and advertisements and posters, wondering what font is
on the page. It also never ceases to amaze me how quickly we become
inured to the magic, how quickly we find that what we have isn't enough
and we want more and better and bigger. It's hard to imagine that we could
want more than the standard set of 256 characters in a typical font, which
is many more than we had on our typewriters. But we do, and that's just
the way it is. And that's why several of the major font vendors created
expert sets, additions to basic font sets that are designed for when we get to
that point of wanting more and better.
