"Now that pixels are becoming invisibly small on our computer screens, it's time to bring bitmaps full circle, back to their function as building blocks of material that you can keep, and, in this case, that can keep you warm. Typographic Knitting covers it all, in glorious detail." — Zuzana Licko, Emigre Fonts
