Boy, I hated yesterday's blog

Boy, I hated yesterday’s blog – I mean rant.
Well, a few weeks ago, Emigre released this incredibly beautiful font called Fairplex, designed by the inimitable font designer Zuzana Licko. I adore this font, and its narrow bold face is truly, and ridiculously, gorgeous. In fact, I think I’m blushing.
The Fairplex font family is derived from a number of historical fonts, mostly dating from the early part of the last century. It has a very strong armature and I could see it being used throughout in subtly designed annual reports, short books, and signage for new companies. I’m realizing, as I write this, that fonts are the neat intersection for Deckchair’s focus: me, art, technology, history, &c.
