Enjoyed this interview! Thanks, Frank! How long does this show run? (Is something up with the Museum of Printing web site? It's not currently accessible...)

A few years BEFORE Adobe shipped applications like Adobe Illustrator 88 ( was released in 1987 ) - ( I played with the beta - Picasso ) and Adobe Photoshop ( later in 1990 ) there were some of us weird left brained artist types who wrote PostScript code to then uploaded and printed our designs.

I certainly did that - one of the most interesting examples of a poster I have hanging in my office was output from hand coded PostScript by Herb Paynter.

1986? Hah! Where's the love for CricketDraw which, in 1985, let pixel heads like me access PostScript by displaying PostScript code generated graphics in real time in a second window. Write your code and see it rendered on screen in real time.
