I don't know if anyone else noticed but today saw a phenomenal release of type news and marketing. In one day, I received an email from FontShop promoting the gorgeous new FF Meta Serif (congratulations to Erik Spiekermann, Christian Schwartz, and Kris Sowersby), an email from House Industries noting that its new http:// Neutraface Complete is on sale until December 1, an email from Veer for Alejandro Paul's new Feel Script, an email from ITC for its (questionably useful) http:// ITC Intro, as well as an email about the release of ScanFont 5.0 for Windows.
It either means that Wednesdays are good days to release type news or that font serendipity is a real thing. Or, perhaps, I've subscribed to too many type email newsletters and haven't noticed the confluence before.
Mostly, I wonder, what do folks think of FF Meta Serif? To me, it is lovingly crafted and will be a strong addition to my serif collection.
