Type Shopping
0

Recently, I went on a complete shopping spree for type.

The two online destinations that I kept coming back to were Village and Fountain, due to their pricing, tight selection, usability and general value. H&FJ is, of course, great, but I feel like I have memorized their entire catalog already and they're a little pricey.

Does anyone know of anything new and comparable that I am unaware of? The huge sources (FontShop, Veer, Linotype, etc.) tend to overwhelm and are difficult to shop.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Sam

PS Some other close runner ups included: Dalton Maag, Emigre, House Industries, Typotheque, Underware, and OurType.

* I ended up buying Omnes, Apex Sans and Pill Gothic, if anyone was interested.

Two I can think of:

Joshua Darden
Adriane by Typefolio has a nice italic.

I love Village and Fountain. I also like Psyops and Type-O-Tones. I also would like more from Shinn Type. I am looking forward to Figgins and Scotch Modern being released.

All smaller sources, but goodies: DSType, Kimera Type, LucasFonts, MAC Rhino, Parachute, Process Type Foundry, Stone Type Foundry, Sudtipos, and, of course, Schwartzco.

Hi Sam,

It sounds like your typographic tastes are well covered above but if you're interested in a little more display variety and generally quick shopping, I invite you to visit the Font Bros.

Best,
Stuart :D
