Some of my friends were wondering about where on less well known places to get fonts—beyond, say, House Industries, FontShop or FontBureau. I mean, of course they can look at Luc Devroye’s copious bibliotheca about absolutely everything you need to know about typography, but below are some of my personal favorites, in no particular order:
Joshua Darden Studio
Textaxis (sadly, their fonts are not for sale)
Jeremy Tankard Typography
Process Type Foundry
MAC Rhino Fonts
Jarno Lukarilla Type Foundry
KLIM Typographic Design
Cape Arcona Type Foundry
Terrestrial Design and Carl’s newly released superfamily, Beorcana.
Titus Nemeth, who worked on Nassim. I don’t know how soon it’s going to be released in, though.
Protimient, whose designer also maintains the only paid but well designed recipe site that I know.
Bionic Systems, which has a really trendwhore aesthetic about it.
Just Another Foundry
Suitcase Type Foundry
Stone Type Foundry by the world renowned Sumner Stone.
P22, which has freaking Gerald Giampa and Jim Rimmer on their staff. Here’s their picture chillin’ out Lanston style with Mr. Stone. God, I’m so geeky when it comes to this kind of stuff.
primetype, typeface design by Ole Schäfer of FF Info fame.
Speaking of which, I promise that you won’t regret buying the Building Letters 3 CD because it’ll help tsunami affected country (like Indonesia) while stocking you with good typefaces (one of which was designed by yours truly.)
And I’ll close this posting by saying that, sometimes, ‘killing widows and orphans’ are a good thing. Good night.
