Goodbye to Mr. Young


Mr. Doyald Young and I in Memphis Tennessee. My girth shows baby B was there with us too.


I had the great pleasure of sitting on a round table with Mr. Doyald Young, one of my typographic heroes, back in 2009. I think he is looking over all his pupils with as much energy as he gave each and every one of us.

Goodbye Mr. Young, it was a pleasure to know you.
