Dyoald Young's Books

Hello there guys, i'm really wanting to purchase Doyald Young's books, but they aren't the easiest to find, especially in Europe. I found this website, and they have the boxed set for sale: http://www.doyaldyoung.com/DYC01.html

However, there is zero contact information on the site, and i'm a little wary spending $300 when I don't even know if i'll get the item, I don't see the boxed set for sale anywhere else like Amazon. For this type of purchase I would want to track it and insure it, but there are no options for that.

Does anyone know if the site is legit? Or if there is anywhere else I can buy the boxed set?

Thanks!

-Josh

Hi all. This will be my first post on Typophile. I am very much interested in learning more about type design and it is my ultimate goal to design a few of my own. I already have some ideas floating around my sketchbook. Can anybody offer me some advice on how/where to begin. Also, what are some good resources (books, websites, etc.)? I am studying GD in school at the moment but none of my professors have ever designed their own typeface. Thanks!

Graphic Design student looking for best Type books

Hello,

I am currently a graphic design student and I am looking to bring my typography skills/knowledge up to a higher level. I'd love any recommendations of must have books about type. Which typefaces/fonts are the best/most widely accepted and why, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

What's wrong with this? Chiseled C looks bad.

Forums: 

Dear Typophile

I'm trying to use my mark as in an illustration, where I'd like the A & C part seem as if it was chiseled.
If I may say so myself, I think my A is quite okay. But the C is driving me mad!

I'd like to convey the effect in only two colours, and all the c's presented seems a bit off to me. Number 4, of course, is the most sketchy one. Just wanted your take on it, before I go on.

best regards
Mads

astroluxtype's Koo Koo Puff new font release

Forums: 

Does the world really need one more vernacular pop culture typeface? We here, at astroluxtype shout a resounding yes!

Sure, you can find the apex of fine font design that will have your mind and eyes burst with joy at the level of sophistication and craftsmanship they exhibit- Koo Koo Puff Condensed and Light Condensed are not one of those fonts. But if kooky goofy is your thing, we're selling it at the astroluxtype booth.

Your favorite extended typefaces?

What are some of your favorite extended typefaces?

I prefer Reservation Wide, by Silas Dilworth. Right now, it seems to be my go-to typeface for extended type. Idlewild by HFJ is another favorite.

Obvious ones like Helvetica and Univers will probably dominate this list, but what are some of your favorite extended typefaces?
