Andy Crewdson is a type historian and critic (perhaps from Bethesda, Maryland) who studied history at UC Berkeley, and more recently in Washington, DC. Crewdson created the popular blog Lines and Splines and later replaced it with New Series. He has been noticeably absent from typographic discussion and publishing since 2003, a fact bemoaned almost yearly with cries of "Whatever happened to Andy Crewdson?" on all the type blogs and forums.
