"From 1984 to 1990 Sumner Stone was director of typography at Adobe Systems, whose development of computer-based type fonts combined with its PostScript language and software to revolutionize the potential of desktop publishing. From this vantage point Stone was in a unique position to observe, and contribute to, the dizzying advances in technology that transformed the tradition-bound history and practice of typography from the specialty of the few to the tool of the many."
