"Understanding of type demands more than the merely superficial knowledge of certain facts: one must rather penetrate into the significant becoming that stretches back over centuries and millenia. - Types are a key to the gate of human understanding. It is the instrument with which man opens for himself the knowledge of nature and of himself, it is like a mirror which, carefully regarded, can reveal the countenance of the times and their changing expression. No advance is possible without the printed word. How many hopes, how many dreams of mankind has it brought to fulfillment! Print is the link between man and man, between our yesterdays and our morrows. -Hermann Virl, Stuttgart"
