New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm a big fan of Emigre's Vendetta, its ciselled look and calligraphic/venitian touch. I'm working on a project where I might get to used it and I would like to get a nice compagnon/s for it to be used for display, graphics, but eventually also captions and short text... maybe a geometric sans to contrast Vendetta but I'm very open
I came across two examples that i thought were interesting (slabs in this case) but once I've put them next to each other it didn't really drive me crazy. Moreover I haven't found available fonts close to them. I'm attaching previews if you don't feel like navigating away:
1) Mark Bally's Oberland http://www.marcbally.ch/oberland-slab-light/
The Late Spring 2011 Rejuvenation catalogue arrived a couple of days ago—covered in typographic fun. Someone there clearly knew what they were doing when they set up the shoot:
Wood letter print on the wall; Helvetica Forever, The Living Alphabet, and a pile of Emigres (Issue 32 on top) on the table (along with others in the stacks I don't recognize).
Good books and good lights, together.
Just saw this very recently released typeface. Can this really be thought of as derivative of Emigre's bestselling Mrs. Eaves?
