Peace Symbol Puzzle droppin' this Spring:
...old skool sliding puzzle.
Within the packaging will be a letter press card talking about world peace, the peace symbol, and a nob to my friend Luc Devroye (inglorious basterd that he is!) who came out with a font called Wahei (awesome peace symbol dingbat font), which I used here and once before in my World Peace graphic.
It is my intention to have every peace org carry this puzzle, I'm going to approach every single one of them and see what's what.
Thought I'd share.
Today's Daily Heller, from the one and only Steven Heller, has a brilliant Type Tree from Bauer created in 1937 on the occasion of the foundry's 100th anniversary. He's reproduced the extensive text illustrating the tree's myriad classifications and mentions that it's probably not entirely accurate. I'd love to see this community weigh in on Bauer's accuracy in explaining their tree.
I would like to ask something about the "Triplex Serif" font. Do you know if it's used in any company logo? Because it reminds me something... but i can't find out which one!
Thank you very much.
I have hundred's of film fonts mostly from the 50's 60's & 70's.
Remnants of a lettering company I owned in the past.
These fonts were used in hand setting lettering for headline use.
Same font size as Typositor lettering but are film positives for hand setting.
Used for many years they are high quality materials.
I would hate to toss them but I have no storage space.
The fonts are in nine boxes 10"x10"x10" and weight approx 8# each.
I would be willing to ship to anyone willing to pay the freight cost.
Please let me know if anyone is interested. Unfortunately I do have a deadline and need to get rid of them by the end of February. Thanks.

￼￼astroluxtype's Spacepod is a headline display font set. The font contains uppercase and lowercase letterforms with a minimum glyph set. Sold through Myfonts.com. The style suggests weird sci fi from the 1970's or the far future... you decide? Is this the font for your sci fi western book cover title with a nod to The Matrix in the story or a poster for the movie remake of Westworld? Wherever your ship takes you in the universe Spacepod should be the letterforms that identify your interstellar vehicle! See it at Myfonts.com http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/astrolux/spacepod

Could anyone please help me in identifying this font?
Type designer Chank Diesel and yours truly will be taking part in the "Cross Talk" event held at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts this Thursday (Jan. 12, 2012) at 6pm.
Chank will be talking about his own work and I will be quickly surveying the sources of inspiration for type design over the centuries. Then most of the time is devoted to an unscripted conversation and q-and-a about type following our presentations.
Hello, this is my first post in this forum. I´m posting were because me and a friend of mine are doing the following research:
The Muna typestyle is everywhere in the Arab countries. It is not difficult to find an example of its usage anywhere you happen to be in these countries. Ranging from its usage on huge commercial advertisements, Arab Spring protest banners, shop signs, to small tickets, the Muna font is usually the designer's or typesetter's preference.
Check out this typeface inspired by the forthcoming 2012 Royal Diamond Jubilee. Click on the 'gallery' section. Feel free to comment on the blog too. Thank you.
Which typefaces have been used in the past and which are used nowadays in Reading Primers?
Sometime ago I was haunted by the Lords of Graphite. They possessed me to create a pencil project - characters created of pencil segments...
Two headed Sentinel.
One of the Underlords.
Underlord with two Minions - side view.
Underlord with two Minions - front view.
...I feel a little relieved now that I've let loose these few ones ...whew. The vision that haunts me still is a landscape of dark brooding mystic air - raw rough lines drawn forcefully throughout by the Lords of Graphite.
More to come...
Hi Guys! I#m looking for a font with a grungy/retro style, something which might be found on old wooden packaging boxes from South America or something. An example image is listed below, if you know anything like this, or even something that doesn't but would look good too, just fire away. Appreciate it!
I like to make a research about gender design.
Like the man that engrave the first type at 6pt, there are some moment in history pointing the first woman to make a typeface?
If you know some sources that could help me to find more topics in this area, share them where.
Thanks a lot
I made this a few weeks before my hard drive died and I cannot remember the name of the font I used. I have seen a few similar, but not exact same. I am working on flyers for our bar and this is the logo for it.

The Sweet collection is composed of typefaces based on the engraver’s lettering styles that came into fashion at the beginning of the twentieth century. The collection is anchored by Sweet Sans, Mark van Bronkhorst’s interpretation of the engraver’s sans serif (kin to the drafting alphabets popularized in the early 1900s).
A type designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Van Bronkhorst had long been a fan of these historic faces, many of which had all but disappeared from use. A few cuts of the engraver’s sans style existed in digital form, including Sacker’s Gothic (Monotype Imaging) and Engraver’s Gothic (Bitstream), but these interpretations were somewhat limited in their scope.
I just find this old (1999) but still interesting essay about designing noteheads.
I will comment below when i will finish to read it.
I was thinking about a parametrical solution for noteheads, as it's one of the musical glyphs that fits the variables of stroke, direction and orientation. There's a little bit of math inside, hope to handle it....
Please help me identify this font? Its so simple and I'm just wracking my brains trying to identify the exact font.
Thanks so much!
