“In typography neither the old style nor the new style matters; quality does.”
Jan Tschichold, On Typography (1957) — Jason Santa Maria provides a nice little piece about Tschichold’s change of heart, from his youthful days of san-serif only typographic rebellion in Nazi Germany to his latter years of classical inspiration as the head designer for Penguin Press. Tschichold’s writing and design work is something that every designer should be familiar with.
