Mailart Rubberstamp now has an additional Bold weight and complimentary Obliques. The typeface has also been updated with subtle outline improvements, a bigger repertoire of European accented characters, and more consistent, slightly tighter spacing; increase the tracking to recreate the more relaxed, rustic appearance of the earlier version. The fonts are derived from the individually rubber-stamped letters on printed and collaged envelopes received from mailartists, and the typeface Clarendon Condensed.
Mythica is a slightly condensed roman with spur serifs, derived from incised lettering on early twentieth century memorial stones and monuments. The typeface is available in 3 weights each with a complimentary italic.
Non Solus, the first digital version of Eric Gill’s ‘Solus’ of 1929, is now offered in four weights, each with a free italic. The typeface is uncluttered and elegant, more modern and less fussy than Joanna, Gill’s other slab serif, and also possessing greater warmth. The Non Solus family brings a forgotten classic back to active service.
Zabars is a full font developed from the six characters in the spectacular logo of the Zabar’s speciality foodstore in New York City. The Zabar’s lettering is a jewel, possessing greater sophistication and subtlety (and a more contemporary flavour) than the usual bifurcated (split serif) font which might simply suggest ‘Circus’ or ‘Old West’. And it’s been given an even fresher twist through the addition of a new lowercase which helps add to the 1960s countercultural aspect of the font’s personality.
Sardonyx is a soft version of Onyx which takes the best features of the many incarnations of Gerry Powell’s 1937 masterpiece, adds new details (like the more elegant a and Q), numerous subtleties and refinements, and includes rounded corners throughout the font for a refreshingly contemporary twist.
The Pop Cubism fonts are inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s combination of the strong outlines and benday dots of Pop Art with the fragmented viewpoints and facet line divisions of Cubism. The bold letterforms are derived from a variety of styles, both serif and sans, angular and rounded. Pop Cubism is available in two packages: POP CUBISM SHADED is a single font which contains the lines and dot tones for use in a single color. The POP CUBISM COLOR KIT contains three matching fonts, Pop Cubism Outline, Pop Cubism Halftone Underlay and Pop Cubism Color Underlay, for overlaying different colors of lines, dot tones, and background color.
Credit Card is an ALL CAPITALS font for simulating bank cards (and to suggest a context of banking, finance, membership or security). The number keys produce the bigger, squarer digits of the 16 figure card number. There is no lowercase in this font. Instead, the small numerals used for validity dates fill the lowercase letter keys, 1 > 9 being at a > i.
