Default FontShop font promotions

FontShop has a couple of promotions in the online edition of their January newsletter.

The first features their Ten Typefaces of 2007, mostly display types, including serif and sans serif designs as well as some more purely decorative, all in OpenType format.

The group includes FF Meta Serif, an addition to the extended sans-serif Meta family. I also liked Freight, by Joshua Darden, especially the bold italics. There is also a stunning handwriting sort of script, Brisa (by Alejandro Paul and Angel Koziupa) that has connecting and unconnected elements, with OT variations for a very natural look. A retro-grunge set of display faces by Rian Hughes also caught my eye, as did a modernist unicase sans from Icelander Stefán Kjartansson, Armchair Modern.

There are more, all on display at the linked site.

The second promotion is the FontStars 2007 CD, a collection of 29 OpenType fonts from 14 foundries for $600. The collection includes several useful text faces, both sans and serif; a decorative blackface font; five scripts of diverse styles; a stencil, and an outlined face.
