FONTWORKS NEWSLETTER // MARCH 2005

Brace yourselves against the icy conditions with these winter warmers from Fontworks:

- FANTASTIC 30% DISCOUNT ON RED ROOSTER FONTS
In case you hadn't noticed it's now the Chinese Year of the Rooster and to prolong the celebrations we're offering a 30% discount on all RED ROOSTER font families until the end of March 2005. As well as many exciting contemporary releases (Shinn Sans, Glasgow etc) the RR collection includes a number of important revivals from the pre-digital era, amongst them Eric Gill's 'Jubilee' (Stephenson Blake foundry), Les Usherwood's 'Goudy 38' (Typsettra collection) and notable exclusives from the Ludlow foundry. And not a single Chinese font in sight! Stay tuned for details of new Red Rooster releases coming soon. Browse and buy Red Rooster fonts here.

- ELSNER + FLAKE SMARTSET CD OFFER: 54 fonts for £50 GBP (RRP £79)
The special offers continue with this fabulous deal for the EF Smartset CD collection of 45 text and headline fonts plus 9 bonus typefaces. Less than 1 pound a font, this is a great studio startup collection containing various weights of Franklin Gothic, Futura, Bauer Bodoni, Radiant, Garamond No.5 and many other quality script and display faces from this established German foundry. We have 6 copies left so, on your marks, get set, go.

- NEW SHINNTYPE ADDITIONS
In response to various requests from newspaper designers for tighter, blacker, more condensed versions of his Worldwide, Walburn, Brown and Goodchild fonts Nick Shinn has duly obliged and we're delighted to announce the availability of the following new families and weight extensions. If you're involved in newspaper and magazine art direction/design then these are definitely for you. Comments from the man himself:
Nicholas:
Headline partner to my Jenson revival 'Goodchild', the whole family is designed for ultra-tight fitting, with lots of very precise kerning and features such as a specially designed "f" that doesn't require ligatures, and a "j" with a very modest tail (otherwise the damn thing always protrudes into the margin when starting line two of a headline).
Worldwide Ultra:
Packs a huge wallop into a tiny space, and yet maintains a smart cut, never cumbersome:
Walburn Ultra:
Same idea as Worldwide Ultra, although it's a bit more spacious:
Brown 2 family:
Brown Heavy is the Sumo of the new Browns: in all they offer a broader, more subtly differentiated palette

- OPENTYPE FONT OF THE MONTH: LF TAZ III
Designed by Luc[as] de Groot to his extremely exacting typographic standards, Taz was originally released in 2001 as a boldly refreshing 16 weight PostScript sans family with eye-catching open 'a' and sharply angled counters. The fonts were re-made last year in OpenType format (standard PostScript is still available) with the addition of 14 new hairline, ultralight and semilight weights to form the impressive new 30 weight Taz III family. Packed full of OpenType features and with extensive language coverage, Taz III is ideal for clean, modern, legible text and display usage, strong in personality and very future-proof. View and buy here.
