Why I love Typography

Why are so many people interested in typography? The fascination of the subject itself would seem to be the answer. It is a subject that quickly gets its devotees into uncharted depths, where aesthetics meet engineering, where arts meets maths, where the strictly ephemeral and decorative meets a quest for timeless values and transparent functionalism.
