I didn't know that Kelley Deal (Kim Deal's twin sister and guitarist for The Breeders), had made a font with the help of Chank Diesel!
Today's Gothamist has a great post about the NYPL's Rare Books Division, with plenty of drool-worthy images.
Bonset is my latest FontStruction (now that I have OS X at home, I am spending way too much time at FontStruct!).
My version deviates from van Doesburg's tight grid -- it's condensed, and I changed some of the glyphs. I also added a lowercase, and I'm slowly building up the diacritics, with the help of the Typo-cz website for the Central European characters.
So far, it's been a lot of fun!

Tonight I was at the Grassroots Tavern, a favorite watering hole in New York's East Village, when a fellow wearing a KERN zip-up walked up to the bar. Of course I noticed it, and said "Nice!," then promptly showed him my FontShop "SemiBold" t-shirt, which I happened to be wearing. He told me he now had a tech job, but had once done design at an agency. And then he said, "There were some art directors there who would see this and ask me what it meant!"
Sad but true.
