Four New IHOF Designs
was originally designed by poster artist A.M. Cassandre in 1929
as a single font and also as a two-part, two-color font. The P22/IHOF

Our great customers

offerings were so terrific that we wanted to share some of the "close

Two New Font Sets
autumn approaches, we take refuge in introspection, warm sweaters,
and of course... fonts. P22 type foundry responds to the season's
requirements by presenting two new font sets.
One of our new font sets is titled, appropriately enough, Autumn.
P22 Stanyan Autumn
is a set of three fonts based upon a casual hand lettering text
created for the deluxe 1969 edition of "...and autumn came"
by Rod McKuen. 62 extras in this font include images of autumn leaves,
snippets of pastoral scenes, and various McKuen-related icons.
The other new font set is called Ed
Rogers. Ed Rogers (1925-2002) was an unlikely and unintentional
art figure. His art career began in 1981 when he met David Greenberger,
the creator of The
Duplex Planet, an ongoing project that introduces us to people
who are old or in decline. As a resident of the Duplex Nursing home,
Ed became a contributor to The Duplex Planet magazine. David included
his drawings in many issues. Ed's dynamic lettering was a primary
focus of nearly all his drawings. Later, Ed was commissioned to
create lettering for R.E.M. as well as releases by other musicians.
Since 1994, Ed's drawings have been featured in a traveling exhibition
of outsider art. Ed Rogers' vibrant lettering is compelling in its
characteristic inconsistency. The Ed Rogers font set features digitized
versions of his lettering for truly unique design possibilities.
Both font sets are available for an introductory price of $23.95
each (regularly $29.95 each set) or get both sets for a special
price of only $39.95! This introductory price good only until September

New IHOF Fonts From James Grieshaber

degli Arrighi used in his 1522 instructional
lettering book which contains what is considered to be the earliest
printed examples of Chancery Cursive. There are
three fonts in this set that range from simple
italic lettering to rather ornate
swash calligraphy. Letters from all three fonts can be used
