It saddened us to hear that Doyald Young passed away today. Doyald was at once a passionate typographer and master letterer, a patient instructor and mentor, and a devoted friend. He was also the most recent recipient of the Society of Typographic Aficionados’ Typography Award — presented during TypeCon2010, and accepted with the grace, humor, and humility expected of such a vibrant personality.

Tributes and responses have been posted by Art Center, Typophile, and Chez Porchez.
