I can’t imagine that anyone that is visiting my blog isn’t waiting for something so exiting as the upcoming first edition of Codex. Codex is a new quarterly print magazine with feature articles, type reviews, interviews, tips, type history, new and notable faces, essays, type design, from top typography experts.
From what I heard preordering will start any day now.
Geotica comes in four different grades or line thicknesses (One, Two, Three and Four) so it’s suitable for a broad use. Each grade has four styles and is loaded with swashes, final forms, lots of ligatures and ornaments.
Geotica Three regular is free!

The lecture I gave at the 33pt. symposium at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts is now online.
exljbris Font Foundry now on Typekit with Museo, Museo Sans and Calluna. You can expect the rest of the typefaces next week.
iLoveTypography’s favourite typefaces of 2009 has just been published. I am very happy to see Calluna on such a great list.
Museo Slab is featured in MyFonts’ Rising Stars newsletter of January 2010.
I’ve set up “Wild Type Gear”: a little T-shirt shop with some typographic designs I liked to see on shirts. Prices are as low as possible, because it’s just a fun project (I don’t make any profit out of this).
“…This week on the show we interviewed type designer Jos Buivenga, designer of Museo and Calluna. We talked to him about his background, his journey from designing free fonts to selling them through Exljbris, and his recent work with Martin Majoor…”
Being interviewed by Jan Middendorp was a great and Nick Sherman designed it beautifully. I Hope you like it.
Martin Majoor and I had a great day today working on Questa. We’re still in the middle of determining and testing lowercase italic shapes for the text version. Questa will come in three variations: text, display and sans (each in regular, italic, bold and bold italic).
