205 publishing house (books and fonts) launches a new font family!
Norr: Composed of 4 cuts (Sans, Round, Fine and Brick), this font traverses 4 typographical universes with the characteristic to have an identical width for all styles for a simplified use.
Can anyone advise as to a "best practices" when managing the fonts on one's system?
I am going bonkers these days trying to manage all my typefaces. I use Linotype's Font Explorer, but it doesnt seem to do the job or i am doing something wrong. Of particular frustration is when running into multiple versions of one typeface (i.e. Futura — I have cuts from several different foundries and have to use them on different jobs, so i cant just trash the others— i turn them on and off as needed). And secondly, is there an alternative to Font Explorer? Do any of these Font Management Systems really beat all the others? Or are they all just the same? Which one is truly the BEST? Surely someone on Typophile can answer this?
Please could anyone recommend e-book readers that have the ability to install your own fonts? Also I would be interested to find if there are some allowing you to view them on the system and menu.
Hello! I'm trying to find the typeface Jessica Hische uses for the navigational items on her site (Type, Design, Illustration, Back, More etc.) I'm being tripped up by the nice little flourishes in the K, R, etc. Is it possible that it's a custom typeface? Alternatives are also welcome, I really like the proportions that one has going on-- wide but compact, legible very small, etc. Thanks! http://www.jessicahische.com/

I am a student, currently in the process of purchasing my first font pack. After doing some research on this forum I came across two particular options that seems to fit what I need
Adobe FontFolio Education Essentials,
the 1000 fonts from bitstream that are stored with CorelDraw Graphic Suite X5
now my question is which would be better for someone in my position?
Should I stick with the Adobe collection because of the versatility of it's collection, or get the CorelDraw fonts because of the vast immensity in the scale of what it offers? Which of the two would offer me a better ground as far as building up my skills, and collection from?

Beginning in January, 1932, Becker, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, supplied SIGNS of the Times magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project predicted to last only two years. Misjuding the popularity of the "series," it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, uninterrupted run. In late 1941, almost ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in bookform under the title, "100 Alphabets," by Alf R. Becker.
As published in June, 1937, this is the description that accompanied Becker's 66th alphabet, Neonline:
“NEONLINE BLOCK, alphabet No. 66 in Alf R. Becker’s SIGNS of the Times series, is a very bold, modern style for feature display lettering. Care should be taken in the laying out of this alphabet, and every letter should be made as bold as possible...”

I have been a longtime user of Linotype's Font Explorer X on the Mac. I have bought a new Windows 7 (x64) PC and see that there is no current version of Font Explorer X for Windows. I am looking for a comparable replacement. I would like the software to have the ability to activate/deactivate fonts and some Adobe CS5 integration as I use CS5 a lot in my work. Can anyone make any recommendations?
Also on a side note, How do I transfer my existing font library to Windows, I know there has to be some sort of conversion any help would be great.
I have been corresponding with Hoefler Frere about customizing the standard character set for Whitney. Whitney has a default character set and an alternate set. We want to have some of the alternate characters to replace their default characters in the main set, and are told that choosing an alternate character can only be done manually, one at a time, through the glyphs palatte in InDesign/Illustrator.

I'm working in a identity project, I like Dessau Pro Drei for the wordmark but is only available in a package and cannot be purchased separately.
I'm looking for alternatives, nothing too expensive.
Thanks in advance.

I was hoping someone might be able to ID this font used in a childrens book I was reading. Any help would be appreciated.
Ok, so it is that inevitable time in every brand's life when it must be made into a website.
In this case the printed materials would use Gotham Narrow as a body copy font. The question is, which is more like Gotham Narrow: Tahoma or Verdana, and why?
I have adjusted size and tracking to get all three into the same basic space and configuration. Please forgive any little issues.
I am eagerly awaiting interesting comparative notes. Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone, I have always wanted to study typography but never got the chance to do it. I couldn't get into design school because I don't have any design/art background. Currently I'm studying a course that has nothing to with typography/design. I have studied the course for a year and finally realized that I want to pursue a career in typography/design. I will be joining, well actually forced to do national service as it is mandatory in Korea. I want to use my time wisely in the service and study typography but I don't have a clue where to start. Do you have any suggestions on how to study typography? I'm interested anything with typography and eventually want to design fonts.
I will not be able to use a computer for personal use so anything with computer is out of picture.
