Hello to all type fans!
I'm in desperate help of a school assignment i'm currently working on. :(
The brief was to find out about the history of a certain font.
I was assigned to fred lambert's compacta.
Searched high and low on google and the library for him on the related font, but efforts were in vain.
I came across this book by the name of "American type design and designers" as reference according to some helpful source.
Only after reading more, i came to realize there's very little info about him.
It's only about letraset corporation set-up and compacta being the company's 1st letraset font to be created.
I can't figure these questions as the answers have to be long, not some one or two lines.
(1)Reason behind the font
(2)Reason behind the font’s name
(3)History of the font
Can fellow type fans please do me a favor by helping me out? Really appreciate it! :)
