Galaxian Hearts This is a politically neutral post, but I thought it was so well done, that I just had to share it: Village has also released several additions to Chester Jenkins’ Galaxie Polaris family: Version 3 of Galaxie Polaris features some minor improvements and—owing to popular demand—now comes with small caps, and Cyrillic script […]
Type & Lettering I will begin with a recently launched web site, LetterCult. Thanks to regular link contributor Peter van Impelen, I’ve had the pleasure to read this fine blog. There are already interviews with Mark Simonson and the wonderful Gemma O’Brien of Write Here Right Now fame.
Gutbustingly Good Invariably, these kinds of post are couched in grandiloquence, “The World’s Best, most stunningly awesome typographically awe-inspiring found type.” And although, the search engines might love it, I just can’t do it. So here’s some stuff I found that I rather like—and I hope it inspires you. Aaron Martin:
Final Registration What a hectic couple of weeks. Well, time to forget all your worries, sit back and enjoy some type and lettering. The winner of the Designing Books competition is mentioned at the close of today’s article. Thanks to all those who have sent in links and suggestions. The other week I mentioned Typoretum. I […]
A new face from exljbris Apologies for the lack of a Sunday Type last week. I’ll be back on track from this Sunday, when I’ll also announce the winner of Designing Books. Just one brief announcement today. Hot on the heels of an extended Anivers, Jos Buivenga releases Museo Sans, the other half of his […]

A Brief Review A book that carries the names Jost Hochuli and Robin Kinross on the cover is enough to get just about anyone’s synapses salivating.* Designing books: practice and theory, published by Hyphen Press is the best single volume on the subject of designing books. Why save it for the concluding remarks. Hold this […]
Words as Pictures Thanks for your feedback to my questions about posting frequency and the length of these Sunday Type posts. I’ve decided to shorten Sunday Type just a little (though I will sometimes supersize it), and also post relevant newsworthy items throughout the week—if there are any, that is. I’m also considering ‘mashable’ posts […]
Meta goes Micro I wouldn’t usually publish short items like this, but I like it, so here it is. FontShop has just launched a micro-site devoted to FF Meta Serif. Some interesting content, including this downloadable PDF poster:
Get Fit With Fonts Welcome to another Sunday Type. Thanks to everyone who has mailed me links. To those who have mailed me questions, please be patient. I have at least 200 unanswered iLT mails, and I’m working through them in my spare time (and there’s not much of that). Food, good food, is always […]
