ust finished The Peach Keeper. At the end of the book is the requisite acknowledgements page, the page about the author…and the page about the type face used. I don’t remember seeing that in a book before.
But now I know that Fairfield was created by Bohemian-born American Rudolph Ruzicka. The 99-word description of the man and his font used “engraver/engraving” six times…eclipsed only by the word “and” at nine times. The overuse of “engraver/engraving” bugged me, but I suppose there really isn’t a synonym for most professions, so what can you do with 99 words?
I also think I paid more attention to this then I normally would have, because I don’t normally see this kind of about page. Are they always there and I’ve just ignored them?
