LettError: Still crazy after twen‿ty years
FontShop is celebrating its 20th anniversary. We’re being flooded by greetings from all over the world. The very morning Yves Peters posted the above snapshot of Erik van Blokland and Just van Rossum in their early days at FontShop in the interview with Joan Spiekermann, Portuguese KABK student Tânia Raposo took the picture below at the type]media class in The Hague. Frank Grießhammer – the student of Erik’s who e-mailed me the picture – commented that Erik and Just can hardly believe the original picture is only 18 years old. The dudes still look pretty damn good, don’t they?
