Phil Baines

Back in 1997 I went to London and checked out the St. Martin's Academy Of Art College. I picked up a gorgeous brochure (which I later lent to one of those people that do not return books).
The brochure had text set in custom fonts by Phil Baines as well as Barnbrook's Manson ( later renamed Mason ), and also some student typefaces. Phils work was very innovative and I was hoping someone knew where to get his faces or at least view them. As I recall the "A" and "e" looked something like this. The only font I have seen anywhere is "Can you" from Fontshop / Fuse.
