Type Crossword

Welcome to ILT’s first crossword. As you’d suspect, the answers are all related to typography. Owing to the kindness of Henning Skibbe, the prize for one correct entry drawn at random is his beautiful  Haptic (Large-Pack comprising 14 fonts), which retails at $475.

If you’d rather print out the crossword, scan an return to me, then download it here, and return to jboardley at gmail dot com. Don’t worry if you can’t answer all the clues; solve as many as you can. I’ll announce the winner next Sunday.

[ a ] indicates across; [ d ] indicates down. Good luck, and enjoy!
