Camille Bissuel

Camille Bissuel, aka Nylnook, is a free spirit, an open source advocate, and French illustrator based in La Roche-des-Arnauds. He introduces himself in this manner: I'm Camille Bissuel and I'm creating free (as in freedom) graphic novels and illustrations about climate change. Sign-up to become one of my readers and receive a free (as in free beer) short comic! His comic strips are free, and even the font he uses, Comili Book (2016), designed by himself, is free. It is also refreshing to see his entire web site bathed in that wonderful nonchalant script.

He defines free software in this manner: You can use without restrictions. You can copy and distribute freely (as in freedom), and therefore often for free (gratis). You can study by reading its source code, its recipe. You can change to improve. In addition to the philosophical choice, there are three reasons behind my choice of free software, despite my initial training on the Adobe suite and 3ds Max. (1) Software and updates at no cost, even if I donate to projects. (2) Sustainability of my data, thanks to open formats. In 20 years, I will have access to my files, so my creations, without having to seek permission from Adobe! (3)Technical stability of Linux and theses softwares in general, which is a real working comfort.

Liz DeLuna

American designer of these typefaces:

  • Litho Compressed (2016), which is a revival of a typeface designed by William Schraubstadter as Litho Condensed in 1908. Litho Compressed was published as part of the Litho Family by the Inland Type Foundry from 1907-1911 and the American Type Foundry in 1912. The Litho Family was intended to imitate a style of lettering popular with lithographers when lettering and designs were drawn on lithographic stones.
  • Bequeath (2016). Liz explains: The Bequeath typeface is based on gravestone inscriptions carved by Uzal Ward between 1752 and 1792. Ward's lettering style was expressive with a tall x-height, curled finials and a trumpeted lower case t and f. For some of the glyphs alternates were created, in order to include some of the more atypical letter forms, like the slanted uppercase A. Glyphs were also created for the death heads and some of the other decorative flourishes on the headstones. The intention was to create a distinctive digital typeface for use in contemporary design contexts, with reverence to its historical roots.
  • Bowery (2016). Liz: The Bowery typeface is based on letter forms carved into a stone plaque located in the Bowery Mission meeting room on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, dated ca. 1895. In creating the digital typeface design the intention was to retain the eclectic qualities and features of the carved letter forms while transforming them into a cohesive typeface. In order to address the idiosyncrasies inherent in the letter forms alternates were created for some of the glyphs.
