Is Times Roman the first ever custom typeface for a newspaper?

Is Times Roman the first ever custom typeface for a newspaper? I already tried to use both searches (google and typophile's) for some old thread I remember being about the subject, with no luck...
So far the most useful has been: Historic timeline of significant typefaces concerned with typography, somewhat compact in nature.

P22 Cezanne

P22 Cezanne was initially designed by Michael Want in 1996 while he was at P22 type foundry. Cezanne is based on the hand written correspondences of French Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne.

P22 Cezanne was originally created for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Upon it’s release it quickly became one of the most popular fonts of the1990’s, and has remained very popular to this day.

What's with the Indian typefaces on a Mac? Why so similar?

I just got an iMac and wondered, why all the Indian-name typefaces? I assume they include Indian character glyphs, but why so many? Why are they seemingly the same? For example, the following look (nearly) identical (and these probably aren't even comprehensive because I stopped at "M"):

Set 1:

Malayalam
Bangla
Lao
Gurmukhi
Kannada
Myanmar

Set 2:

Bangala Sangram
Devanagari MT
Gjuarati Sangram
Inai Mathi
Lao Sangram
Myanmar Sangram
Malayalam Sangram

Just curious.

Simplepolator allows you to interpolate compatible glyphs in the same font, without leaving FontLab nor interrupting your workflow.

Simply select two compatible glyphs and run the macro:
Five new glyphs will be automatically created, allowing you to choose the best variation.
Making it super-easy to apply the Gunnlaugur SE Briem's method on "How to make mistakes.

Greek (nationality) type designer / typeface wanted!

Forums: 

I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. The next issue will be about Athens, Greece. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Greece, preferably Athens. Do you know of anyone?

The past 2 issues of the magazine have used typefaces created by high profile type designers in appropriate cities and I wish to continue this precedent by representing the city through the typography.

Any help or opinions on Greek type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: hello@luketonge.com

New Release: Eskapade Fraktur

Forums: 

We welcome the very talented Alisa Nowak and her Eskapade to TypeTogether's family.

The Eskapade family is the result of research confronting Roman and German blackletter forms, mainly fraktur letters. The idea is to adapt these broken forms for a contemporary use instead of creating a faithful revival of a historical typeface.

New Release: Adelle Sans

Forums: 

We are pleased to announce that the expected sans serif counterpart to the award-winning Adelle is here.

This sans serif proposes a cleaner and more spirited take on the traditional grotesque sans. As typical with TypeTogether fonts, the most demanding editorial design pieces were taken into consideration when engineering Adelle Sans. The combination of its lively character and unobstrusive appearance that is inherent to grotesque sans serifs make it an utterly versatile tool for any imaginable graphic application, whether it is branding, signage or advertising. Without any doubt, the key word behind Adelle Sans’ design is flexibility.

FontLab Proofing

Forums: 

Pretty basic question, but I couldn't find an answer. Here it is:

I'm expanding a typeface to include old style numerals and small capitals. I have a draft of all these glyphs drawn in FontLab. How would you go about proofing these? I see that you can print up glyph tables in FontLab, but I'm wondering if there is an effective way to create specimen sheets with all these new glyphs in the context of the larger typeface? Ideally, I'd like to print them out. Thank you,

Luke

Hi all!

I'm a new member to this forum, but often come here to look at things/derive inspiration.

I am a GD student at Anderson University in Anderson, SC. Our school is very small in terms of students, but the GD program is strong and almost always has award winning designers graduating. I am currently a sophomore in the program and am absolutely loving it so far!

That being said, during the past month to a month and a half, we have been given the opportunity to design a typeface from scratch - from sketching, to hand rendering, to scanning and pathing in Illustrator, to creating an opentype version of the typeface. I've put a lot of work into this project, so I guess I just wanted some feedback on it!
