Hello all. I am a cartographer (well, cartography grad student) with a keen interest in typography and type design. I was wondering if you knew of typefaces designed specifically for cartography, or at least with an eye to cartographic usage. I know only of Cisalpin by Felix Arnold. A cool face, but without enough weights/varieties. Many of my fellow map-makers rely heavily on Garamond, Helvetica, Frutiger, Meridien, Sabon, Gill Sans, Univers, and Stone for labeling and annotation. These are great faces and surely sufficient for most map designs – just wondering if any cartography-specific faces are out there. I look forward to continuing my typographic education here on Typophile!
