Coming Together Benefit Font Display PDF

chank's picture

Okay, here's something exciting for the ampersand-lover in you!

Here's a revised, final draft of a new PDF specimen display for the Font Aid "Coming Together" Haitian earthquake benefit font. It's a 46 page PDF booklet created by Alison Eickhoff to show off all the great ampersands and give credit where credit is due to all the designers who helped make this font happen. Hundreds of links included.

Let me know if you see any typos or broken links or other bugs and I will try to get it fixed. THis is just a preliminary draft that probably needs a little editing before it goes out to the distributors.

So here it is, have a gander, and let me know what you think. I think it's awesome and I'm so proud to have been able to help with this project. Enjoy!

Looks great—make it a POD book and I’m sure even more funds can be raised.

A lot of effort when into making this PDF and Alison did a great job!

Sale of the font is going well. At last count we had raised about $6500. I expect this number will continue to climb.

Thanks everyone!

Looking fantastic! Good work compiling the font and laying out the specimen.

I'd suggest changing 'England' to 'United Kingdom' on the last spread. I consider myself a Brit not an Englishman.

Thanks to everyone for making this happen!

I just noticed the last spread thanks to Bendy's comment. I wonder why Korea isn't on the list; I consider myself foremost a Korean.

We can add Korea to the list. There may be other countries missing as well. We didn't ask people to provide their nationality, but many offered it and we attempted to compile the information as best we could. With almost 400 participants, it was a lot of data to collate.

If anyone else notices anything that needs to be corrected, please let us know and we'll make the correction.

Nicely designed. I'm looking forward to seeing it as a paperback book. I ordered mine from Lulu yesterday:
