ABOUT







Clarendon

A discussion on Typophile regarding the best Clarendon turned also into a discussion on Egyptians. The highlights:

  • Forrest L. Norvell asks about Clarendon implementations: "URW has a billion different weights, AGFA/Monotype has both Monotype Clarendon and Monotype New Clarendon, and Elsner+Flake offers their version in OpenType, albeit with no OpenType goodies as far as I can tell." He was considering Fortune, Volta, Consort, Farao, or PMN Caecilia.
  • James Montalbano recommends Jim Parkinson's Sutro but Norvell finds it boring.
  • Yves Peters likes Stefan Hattenbach's Oxtail and praises the unexpected thinning of serifs.
  • Yves Peters thinks that Linotype's Egyptienne F is a disgrace.
  • Hrant Papazian's favorite is Egyptian 505, which, just like Humanist Slabserif 712, has concave feet.
  • At least two bloggers love Belizio.
  • Forrest L. Norvell finally decided to license Farao from Storm, although he was tempted by Oxtail, which he called brilliant.
