LettError is a foundry in Den Haag, founded by the interesting duo, Just Van Rossum (b. 1966) and Erik van Blokland (b. Gouda, 1967). Most of their fonts can be found in the FontFont library. Wired interview. Shop. At ATypI 2004 in Prague, LettEror spoke about education in type design, and the RoboFab toolkit.
- At FUSE 11, Erik designed FF Beowolf (a randomized font, sometimes still called Beowulf), FF Erikrighthand, FF Kosmik (1993), FF Trixie and FF Zapata. FFTrixie (of X-files fame), was made based upon an old typewriter. They explain: Trixie was taken from a typed sample from a typewriter owned by a friend in Berlin, Beatrix Günther, or Trixie for short..
- Erik created LTR ThePrintedWord and LTR TheWrittenWord (2001), both free fonts designed to be unreadable.
- Salmiak (2001).
- Critter (2001) and New Critter.
- Bodoni Bleifrei.
- LTR BitPull.
- Federal: great dollar bill lettering font family, which earned him an award at the TDC2 Type Directors Club's Type Design Competition 2002.
- What You See/What You Get (with Just Van Rossum).
- At FUSE 2, Erik published Niwida.
- LTR Monsta.
- In 2005, Erik and his brother Petr made the Künstlerbrüder-Schriftfamilie of 30 fonts (10 widths, 3 weights) based on 3 width masters for each of two weights. It is a quirky and refreshing family made for banners for the Münchener Haus der Kunst in 2005.
- Jointly with Erik Spiekermann and Ralph du Carrois, Erik developed Axel (2009), a legible system font.
- His masterpiece, in my view, is the 2010 family Eames Century Modern, finished at House Industries, a take on Clarendon. It won an award at TDC2 2011. A special extra award was given at that competition for Eames Poster Numerals. For another complete modern Clarendon family, see Canada Type's Clarendon Text.
