¶ I'd like to know if the Haultin typeface is commercially-available. The second edition of Counterpunch (2011) was set with that newly-designed typeface.
Any news?

I have looked at a good number of places that would seem likely to have this and found nothing - I do not think it is commercially available.

¶ Too bad, Smeijers decided not to release this rare attempt to reproduce one of the typefaces cut by Renaissance man Pierre Haultin. It was a real challenge. I hope we get a Le Bé typeface someday too.

Good point, Hrant, I only have the first edition that was set in Renard. Would love to see a page scan.

Ran a sample of Haultin through "Find My Font" and Minion Pro Condensed from Adobe came up, interesting.

¶ Find the visual result.

Love those French types. Will have to see if selling the cat will bring in enough to get the book.
