AXIS by Akira Kobayashi gets Condensed and Compressed

They are adding condensed and compressed for the beautiful sans-serif AXIS and they will be released in next year. As a Japanese graphic designer, I really want it but the entire family of regular weights costs about pricy $2000... ;-(

Hi there:

I'm a huge fan of Mr. Kobayashi's work especially for his take on the informational Frutiger/Myriad genre- Axis. However, it would be advantageous for the foundry to offer a 'latin only' Axis package for the designers that do not use the Japanese language. This would also bring the prices down from their stratospheric heights us humans can afford.

Agree. That's exactly what I was thinking.
