Hello, I need to identify the font in the left part of the picture, I included both since the other one is P22 Sweepy and both of them are featured in the book Typosphere, however the book only talks about Sweepy and does not say anything about the other one.
In case it helps, the designer for Sweepy was Michael Clark.
Just a quick heads up for those who have pre-ordered the Making Faces DVD:
It will ship early this week!
There are 10 languages of translations for subtitles in the works and that version will be released later in the year. Thanks to everyone who supported this project. I hope you like the end result.
P22 Platten is based on a lettering found in a German fountain pen practice book in the 1920s. (You may have seen the similar Speedball books in the US). This round tip pen lettering is comparable to the basic forms used grammar school teaching alphabets, but with a few original characteristics.
P22 type foundry creates computer typefaces inspired by Art, History, and sometimes science. P22 is renowned for its work with museums and foundations to ensure the development of accurate historical typefaces that are fully relevant for today’s computer user.
In addition to its in-house font design, P22 now licenses several new type designs from around the world with International House of Fonts. P22 grew further with the addition of the Sherwood Type Collection. In late 2004, P22 aquired Lanston Type Co. And in early 2006 P22 launched the Rimmer Type Foundry.
