It's this last element - well, typography, if you wanna split hairs - that we're especially interested in this month, and we want to help you learn more about the wonderful, esoteric, magical world of typeface design.
Donald and Liza from Typeradio took the opportunity at the ED-Awards celebrations 2010 in Rotterdam to interview Veronika about her work. She attended the awards ceremony, because TypeTogether received a Gold Medal for Adelle. The interview starts questioning Veronika about religion and then continues to ask how she got to type design, her favourite letter and more.

The update to this beautiful font family includes the addition of over 240 glyphs to the original character set covering Latin A, Cyrillic and Greek. Maiola 2.0 features new ornaments, stylistic alternates, ligatures, superior letters, fractions and more.

Contest to Recognize Websites that Best Integrate Web Fonts is Now Accepting Entries through Nov. 7, 2010
WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 27, 2010 – Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, is accepting entries through Nov. 7, 2010 for the first Web Font Awards, an international competition designed to recognize websites that incorporate exceptional use of Web fonts. Prizes include two $3,000 cash awards, Apple® iPad® mobile digital devices and various typeface offerings from Monotype Imaging. Winning entries will be determined at a live judging event on Nov. 16, 2010, during the Future of Web Design conference, Nov. 15-17, in New York City.
According to Steve Lee, product marketing manager for Monotype Imaging's creative professional division:
Many Web designers have been asking how Monotype Imaging supports iPhone® and iPad® devices using Fonts.com Web Fonts service. These devices are known for superior display quality, and as our testing and usage have shown, there’s no exception when it comes to Web fonts. The iPhone 4, for example, with its 960-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi (higher than early laser printers), renders text that is simply stunning. Web fonts really shine when zooming to see content up close, thanks to their amazing sharpness and clarity.
Our approach to Mobile Safari® support can be summed up in two words: simplicity and control.
LeFrançois is a typeface in OpenType format based on 3 series of capitals.
It seems to be classical but some glyphs show that it's not so conventional.
It's seems to be a typical French type, that's why its name is LeFrançois (with the accent please !)
With a particular work on kerning (about 5000 !) and ligatures, you'll be able to compose words as logotypes thanks to capitals and small caps.
It will be soon available at http://www.editions205.fr
