From "The Typographer," March/April 1985: "The entire technology base is being turned upside down," says (Johnathan Seybold.)

"What this means is it's time to say goodbye to the distinctions between the images output by the office and those of typesetters," he insists....

"It probably isn't appropriate any more to talk about the typesetting industry as a specialized industry in and of itself," he told a meeting of the Los Angeles
Typographers Association.

And what what was he talking about?

"The Apple LaserWriter, a $10,000 system of imaging text and graphics from a desk-top Canon CX printer controlled by a souped-up Macintosh computer."

Remember when ?
