One of our typophiles, Georg »Bleisetzer« Kraus, has passed away on July 22nd 2010. He was a man with character, who didn’t refuse to tell his own opinion, especially if it is against the mainstream. He was a keeper of lost typefaces, a provider of vintage typespecimen; a fighter for the »black art«, for mankind, for his home country. He lost his last fight this July. I will always remember you, Georg. Gott grüß die Kunst.
