Interesting, but what caught my eye was the writer’s comment: “Aldus has attracted some pop-culture attention in recent years, at least among those with a geekish taste for printing history.” And I guess that’s some of us. And I never had a pocket protector even when they were stylish.

If no pocket protector, Fritz, how about a Copyfitter slide rule?

Geekish‽ it’s always been my understanding that printers were the sexiest people in the world.

How about a proportional wheel?

Don’t pay any attention to the detractors. They are the same jealous folks that use the term “Type Nerd” like it’s a bad thing.
