TYPE Magazine
Back in August of 2016, Roger Black approached me about his idea to launch a new magazine about typography and design. He asked me to join the project as managing editor and I am as excited today as I was six months ago.
TYPE is an opportunity to share what I love most about the world of typography: The People.
Using the contacts that Roger has (I literally think he knows everyone in the industry and has a matching story for each person) and my connections through making “Linotype: The Film” we hope to tell great stories from great people.

Anonymous Pro Font
Anonymous Pro (2009) is a family of four fixed-width fonts designed with coding in mind. Anonymous Pro features an international, Unicode-based character set, with support for most Western and Central European Latin-based languages, plus Greek and Cyrillic. Anonymous Pro is based on an earlier font, Anonymous™ (2001), my TrueType version of Anonymous 9, a Macintosh bitmap font developed in the mid-’90s by Susan Lesch and David Lamkins. Anonymous Pro is distributed with the Open Font License (OFL).

The Taxonomy of Typography
Justify your love for letters with this taxonomical treatise on typography! A capital guide to the punctilios and profiles of typesetting, this print examines the essential elements of, well, print! Presented in a compartmentalized type case recalling 18th century letterpress, this movable feast scrutinizes everything from type variety (Gothic, serif, sans serif) to letter anatomy (apertures, diphthongs) to spacing (kerning, leading)—a quaint encomium to the odds and ends of printed language.

Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering - Joel on Software
Apple and Microsoft have always disagreed in how to display fonts on computer displays. Today, both companies are using sub-pixel rendering to coax sharper-looking fonts out of typical low resolution screens. Where they differ is in philosophy.

Inconsolata is my first serious original font release. It is a monospace font, designed for code listings and the like, in print. There are a great many "programmer fonts," designed primarily for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to detail for high resolution rendering.
