I agree. It is a wonderful way to bring the old into the new whether in print or image(s).

The flatbed scanner was invented 1975 by the most remarkable Ray Kurzweil, together with optical character recognition and text-to-speech synthesis. He developed the flatbed scanner after a conversation with a blind man who expressed the desire to have a machine that could read all types of characters and transfer the content into an audible voice.

I am also very thankful for the invention of the scanner. These "typecasts" on blogs is a very interesting blend of old and new technology.

I really like the typeface on your Hermes 3000! Very crisp and clear, and pleasant on the eyes.
