Does anyone have a real world examples of Missionary font in use i.e.- magazine, website etc? As I'm desperate to find a example for an essay I have to hand in tomorrow.
Danish Fashion Institute and the now defunct Blueprint magazine.
Thanks. I didn't have enough time left so I chose another font for my essay but I will note the examples down for future reference. Thanks once again.
Isn't the font pictured actually Fling?
EDIT: Oh I see.
It's a shame you changed your mind. Missionary is actually
very fascinating, not least due to being based on... OCR-A!
And Miles Newlyn even hangs out here on occasion (and I
could have alerted him to this thread).
I have one of the first ads of Emigre using a letter of Missionary, printed in one of the first issues of Ray Gun.
Inversely, I have seen it rarely used, although in the past I collected examples of the other typefaces drawn by Miles at the time.
I can stare at missionary forever but have yet to find a place to use it.
