Default Rimmer fonts on sale in November

P22 is offering a 25%-off deal on any (or all) of fonts designed by Jim Rimmer during November 2009. The collection includes text families as well as display faces.

Canadian Jim Rimmer began cutting metal type the old-fashioned way, then switched to digital type design in the 1980s. His work includes text families, intended for book work, as well as charming display types, including Zigarre Script, Poster Paint (reminiscent of one of Goudy’s designs), and Alexander Quill (thumbnails of these are attached).

You can view specimens, learn more about Rimmer’s work, and view illustrations of his illustrated book, Leaves from the Pie Tree (unfortunately out of stock at this time), at the Rimmer Type Foundry link at the P22 site.
