    Canaro by Rene Bieder.

    I will always enjoy to introduce you a typeface made by Rene Bieder, his taste for geometrical typefaces is unique, the details are very delicate and he can repeat that geometrical formula whenever times he want, even with slab serif like Quadon (the logo of this blog is made with Quadon), is definitely one of the best type designers right now.

    The typeface is introduced by itself, but here is how he describe it:

    Conceived as an exploration of geometrical typedesigns of the early 20th century, Canaro developed into a font of that period with a modern streak. The lack of spurs provide a unique but unobtrusive appearance and support the contemporary character. In addition, the open shapes in combination with a tall x-height, create legibility in small text sizes. Typographic features like alternative lettershapes, ligatures, oldstyle numbers, arrows, fractions, special characters and many more, round up the whole family. Canaro is available in nine weights plus matching italics. Ranging from sharp and elegant thinner cuts to sporty and athletic heavy weights.

    You can buy this premium beatiful typeface with a 80% off (limited time) here: http://myfonts.us/k3045v

    Finished. Bowing to peer pressure, I left it as one piece and backed it. My original intent was to make bunting… I can always change my mind next year and cut it up into little squares :-)

    (As mentioned before, patterns for the squares are here, free: http://wibbo.typepad.com/tom_pudding_designs/2010/12/scandinavian-red-white.html)

    Merry Christmas :-)

    Over the past few months I have been trying to get my head around human geography and how TLLP fits in. Well finally after several brain-aching months, it is slowly starting to piece together, here is just some of the work in typography over the last few months.
