I needed more fuzz bass this week and this performance from Toronto favorite Hayden Desser has it in spades.

Notable Type Releases

  • Austerlitz is not a Didot. Instead, its designer Jean François Porchez would prefer to think of it as an everyday, unassuming typeface.
  • Canturiana from Latinotype is inspired by Morris Fuller Benton’s Canterbury, originally released in 1920 and is full of musical character across its 5 weights and myriad swashes, alts, and ligatures.
  • Andaluz from Storm Type Foundry feels like it stepped right out of a remote mountain brewery with its steep arches, sharp cuts, and without being a traditional blackletter.
  • Skrr Type’s new Division may be characterized as a modern reimagining of sorts of Günter Gerhard Lange’s Berthold Script with a combination of monoline paired with a regular mid-contrast style.
  • Parachute Type Foundry’s geometric monospaced Spekk Mono Variable blends smooth curved strokes, horizontal terminals, and open, optimized apertures and counters to give it a warm, friendly personality — a rarity in monoline geometrics.
  • The Unical-informed but simplified sans-serif stencil forms that comprise Charmin from Théo Guillard has hit version 0.3 on Future Fonts.
  • XYZ Type has released an early version of the bookish sans-serif Grep.
