Opening Sentence of the Day: Just My Type: A Book About Fonts

On 12 June, 2005, a fifty-year-old man stood up in front of a crowd of students at Stanford University and spoke of his campus days as a 'lesser institution' -- Reed College in Portland, Oregon.
-- from the author's Introduction to Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield (thanks go to Amused By Books because I won this in her December giveaway.)

The introduction describes Steve Jobs explaining his early fascination with calligraphy, which led to his revolutionary use of multiple fonts in his first Macintosh computer. 

A Few More Pages hosts Book Beginnings every Friday.  The event is open for the entire week.
