Lars Bergquist, of Timberwolf Type, born in 1936, is a self-proclaimed "leftover from the age of lead type and letterpress printing." His first avocation was history, which may well explain his love of classical letterforms, historically significant typefaces and "...fuddy-duddy typography in general." Recently retired from a lifetime in the technically advanced field of reference publishing, he has decided to spend his next life as a dedicated type designer. His typeface Absolut Type -- published by PSY/OPS as Aalborg -- received a Certificate of Excellence in the Bukva:raz! type contest arranged by the ATypI in 2001. He has been happily married to the same woman since 1964, lives outside Stockholm, Sweden, and has two daughters and a grandson. His atypical interests are history, small arms, photography and hiking in the mountains of Lapland.
