Fontworks Newsletter | July 2002

Right, no football for a few weeks (unless you support InterToto hopefuls) so time to get back to some serious work! Those suffering from withdrawal symptoms can console themselves with the following type news, new font releases, posters etc.

- NEW FONTWORKS MAILING
Those of you lucky enough to be on our print mailing list will soon be receiving a wonderful package stuffed full of exclusives. A fabulous new ACME poster (A1 size with nifty fold-up panel), G-Type 'Precious' flyer and the long-awaited Club 21 poster are accompanied by a Neue Helvetica promo and Font Bureau new release piece (see details below). As usual these reference materials are designed to fit inside your ' FONTBOX ', the ultimate type catalogue and storage unit, and are also available to download in PDF format

- G-TYPE GET 'PRECIOUS'!
Nick Cooke, creator of gems such as ' 'Houschka' , 'Nubian' & 'Digitalis' has surpassed himself with the release of the PRECIOUS double header, exclusive to Fontworks. The 16 weight Precious Sans family now has a 12 weight Serif companion, designed to share the same proportions of x-height, stem thickness & ascender/descender values so that both styles are seamlessly interchangeable. Ideal for both text and headline setting. Call if you'd like a flyer.

- NEW ACME FONTS, POSTER & EXHIBITION
The ubiquitous Christian Kusters, not content with a recent Creative Review cover showcasing his 3D Metropolis project, has his work on display for the next few weeks at The Design Museum in London. The new ACME poster from Fontworks, including new weights AF Diwa , Zip Code & PostSoviet , was produced in collaboration with architect-animators Greg More and Nick Mckenzie. Call us on 020 7490 5390 to get hold of this stunning promo. Purchase ACME fonts online.

- LUCASFONTS POSTER
Dutch type guru Luc(as) de Groot, creator of the world's largest font family Thesis, has delivered a new poster to us, a must-have for any Corporate Identity specialist; new cross-platform sans families such as Taz and Corpid will make an undoubted impact before long. Call or e-mail sales@type.co.uk if you'd like a poster. View online samples.

- TYPE 1 BOOK RELEASED
Nathan Gale's keenly anticipated review of recent digital typeface design, Type 1, is published by Laurence King this month. Gale features 178 fonts grouped into style categories and there is an accompanying CD featuring 8 free fonts including 'Aminta' from Alias (Gareth Hague's wonderful re-take on Courier) and Julian Morey's 'Basic-21' (Club 21) which pays homage to the 8-bit world of the 1980s home computer. Available from good bookshops like Magma. Alias & Club 21 designs can be viewed and bought online.

- TRAVELLING TYPOGRAPHER #7
Neil MacMillan never takes his eye off the ball! Latest football flavoured edition of the popular series: Issue 7
