new blogger - Israel Seldowitz

Back a couple of decades, when Hebrew on computers was still a messy subject, I met Israel Seldowitz virtually. He had studied with Henri Friedlander, the great Israeli calligrapher and font designer (most famously, Hadassah), and come back to the States to start up a company to market fonts and font software. Here we are some two decades later, and that company, FontWorld, has been the sponsor of the Hebrew Type blog. Now we have captured Israel as a blogger. I will be moving this blog to a new design soooooooon (as I've been saying since I wiped out most of the customized design in an accident a couple of years ago), but not so soon that it made sense to wait any further before letting Israel start writing. His first post follows.
