Default Lanston’s optical spacing font

I neglected to mention this at its April release, but think it deserves notice.

P22 is offering LTC Spacing Sorts, a tribute to the transition and evolution of type and typesetting from handset to digital and the renaissance of hand printing using digital methods as a tool.

The package includes information on the “TeleGlyph” system, introduced in the late 1980s when Lanston Type Company attempted to introduce optical spacing and other niceties to desktop digital fonts. They were ahead of their time, but it is interesting to read about this experiment.

I suspect this is of most interest to typographic scholars and fussbudgets, but it can be had — by anybody, even the merely curious <g>. Do go check it out.
