Chromosome

ChromosomeIt hit me one day that the ’60s-vintage labelmaker I found in the back of a drawer might make an interesting display face. I began playing around—squeezing out letters at various pressures, scanning the results, going over the scans in a vector-graphics app. Looked pretty good. To my chagrin, however, I soon after got a glimpse of someone else’s label-tape font. Though modeled after a more modern device, its rocketing popularity prompted me to set Chromosome aside for a year or so. Finally finished it up in late-1995. The full release has light and heavy weights, regular and reversed styles. US$39.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Attic Antique

KIND WORDS:

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“Oh! I'm in loooove with [Lamar Pen]! It's lovely, it's organic, it's real, it's got history & tradition. My designs are singing!”
—C.C., Palo Alto CA

“The Lamar Pen font is divine. We are using it on a novel set in the eighteenth century, and the author is ecstatic.”
—J.H., London, England

“I have never encountered such fine and detailed work in a handwritten font before. I heartily applaud your attention to detail and historical accuracy.”
—J.W., Seattle WA

“Keep up the fonts! They are some of the best I have seen in 10-plus years of design.”
—M.O., Little Rock AR

“This is a fantastic resource and the fonts are beautiful!”
—C.B., Bethesda MD

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada
