Re: Robert Norton, RIP

I met Robert Norton a few times, we were both members of the Wynkyn de Worde society where typographers, printers and 'those who care about these things' would meet for a monthly amiable chat.

A modest man, he knew far more about typography than he would let on, and did a great job whilst at Microsoft, despite the challenges he faced there.

Since his death technology has moved on significantly, and the need for typographical expertise in technology firms is greater than ever.
