The FontShop 2006 Calendar
Last year’s FontFont calendar was so popular, we’re doing another. Like before, each month presents one of our favorite typefaces. But this time, other foundries in the FontShop family are represented.
Now for the twist: we’ll be releasing each month one at a time. Why? It’s a great way to see what’s new at FontShop as the year progresses. But also, each month contains a clue for the typeface featured in the month to fullow. Within the days of January, you’ll find a detail close-up of February’s font. Put your identification skills to the test and guess what’s coming next. Or simply admire the beauty and craft of good type design.
Update: Each month’s calendar will be announced in the FontShop newsletter. Add your name to the emailing list to get the calendars as soon as they are released. If you are sure you are subscribed but aren’t getting the newsletters, check your spam box. You may need to add “moc.pohstnofnull@swen” to your address book so our emails don’t get tossed in the same bin as Viagra ads.
