Hermann Schmidt Verlag, Mainz
, recently published the 2017 version of legendary Typodarium, a tear-off calendar with a daily dose of fresh type specimen
. You propably wouldn’t want to tear off these beautiful pages, though. This year, Typodarium was opened for Non-Latin entries, which is good news to me. It was an honor to be asked to submit three pages – April 7 (Frust, a new sans serif development), August 28 (Hong Kong Street Face 港街黑), and October 14 (AR Laowai Sung 文鼎老外宋). Better order your copy soon!
