For Immediate Release

October 25 has been designated World Pasta Day, and as part of typography’s contribution to this important initiative, we’re pleased to share the following: an excerpt from the typeface “Nr. 941. Dubbelmittel (corps 28),” as it appears in Berlingska Stilguteriet Stilprof, a type specimen book from the Berlingska type foundry of Lund, Sweden, circa 1900. It is a dimensionally extruded ring accent, shaped like a piece of rigatoni.

This concludes our contribution to World Pasta Day. See you in 2011. —JH

Gotham Now 100% Batman-Compliant

Oh come on. People have been trying to make this headline work for years.

Working on a book for DC Comics last year, our friend Mike Essl encountered two non-standard accents in the name of bat-nemesis Rā’s al Ghūl: an a-macron, and a u-macron. Mike’s the kind of guy to roll his own (a lesser man would have called tech support), but we’re happy to announce that the new OpenType edition of Gotham contains these accents and more, as part of H&FJ’s Latin-X character set.

Gotham contains all the accents for Turkish, too, in case you’re visiting that other Batman. —JH
