  • Re: ‹y› with a clear baseline

    I noticed that in Aldus’ italic, compared to something like Janson Text (or quite exaggerated; DTL Fleischmann), the calligraphic construction of the ‹y› is almost opposite in terms of left/right stress. If I were to think of a rationale besides reducing the blackness in the crotch with the flat vertex, the shape does seem to harmonize between the roman and italic.




  • Re: Out of print books

    I've read a few out-of-print books, including The Stroke and Counterpunch, at no personal cost, thanks to inter-library loans. I'm sure it's particular to different countries, library databases and university library policies which books are available, but maybe it's worth looking into, if this isn't too obvious to mention.
  • Re: Is the term ‘foundry’ a proper name for digital companies?

    Monokrom uses a compound word in Norwegian, ‹skriftforlag›, meaning font publisher/publishing house.
