Hey Hey the MLE,
A couple weeks ago I got the latest newsletter from Hoefler&Co Fonts which discussed stylistic sets for webfonts. Always a bit exciting for me, as it shows that we have taken another little step forward to achieving more control over type online.
As you can see in the images above, there are many controls: commercial ampersands, raised punctuation, short-tailed Qs, etc etc... *rubs hands together.
Okay, true that stylistic sets have been around for awhile now, but I haven't really jumped on using them, as there was still some questions re browser support as well as load times. But now these are less of an issue, I am looking forward to trying them out.
Have a nice weekend my friend,

Hey hey MLE,
Well well well, finally here are the photos I took while at the Type Directors Club 2012 exhibition at JWT here in London back in October. Was worth checking out (and not just for the free drinks). I've included a dozen photos of my favourites, no need to comment thankfully. I'm sure it will inspire something somehow whether it is type overlaid on top each other several times, joined together with blue tape, or printed in irritatingly jarring colours. All good stuff.
Looking forward to our meet in the morning. Though I can't stand mornings...

After reading this, I felt surprised someone hasn't thought of this before. All those lovely little scrabble letters just waiting for type nerds to style...
As you can see, it comes packaged with a walnut drawer and sells for $199 USD.

Your best type nerd friend 4eva,
