"It takes four seconds to make up your mind about a typeface, and about eight minutes to explain why, in detail. It takes about ten years, give or take a couple, to figure out why all the print typographers moan that there's more to Good Typography than a nice typeface; they'd say it would take as much to explain the whole thing. Gerry will attempt to do it in 44 minutes, leaving just enough time for a joke about old typographers."
