David John Earls is a graphic designer based in London (a small polluted backwards city in western Europe), and the author of Designing Typefaces, a book published by RotoVision. He considers it a personal quest to persuade owners of his book to burn its detestable dust jacket.
In 1999, David Earls founded Typographer.org, which has since that time offered impartial and non-commercial writing on matters type. He sometimes designs typefaces for his own enjoyment, but considers himself to be very much an amateur with a great deal to learn.
