    There’s no discussion about the significance and impact of Monotype in the history of modern printing and movable type. An institution of astonishing importance without question. I am however worried that Monotype is becoming the Adobe of the typography industry. It’s even latent in the company name that they are on the verge of becoming a monopoly. It’s not healthy that one entity has this much power and influence over a single market in my opinion. Hats off for their merits of yesteryear, but I hope they are stopped before ruining the market for us all.
