I’m sure you’d all like to join in congratulating Kris, and the other winners.Winning entries are divided into five categories, and here is a taster from three of them:

Just a sampling of the selected winners. There’s also the very good Japanese display face Logo Jr Black (I especially like the Katakana!); and of course Palatino Arabic by Zapf and Nadine Chahine.

Just about all of the entires have PDf specimens, so fire up your printers to fully appreciate them.Be sure to check out the other winners on the TDC2 2008 Winners page. Do you have your own favorites among the winners?
