  • Lexie Readable | K-Type
    to appeal to a contemporary audience While Comic Sans has long been a preferred choice for infant typography from Baby on Board stickers onward its use risks undermining any serious message and appearing condescending to readers with greater visual maturity issues that are particularly acute when applied to adolescent and adult literacy Typographical concerns from recent educational publications and discussions and some highlighted by the British Dyslexia Association have been incorporated into the design of Lexia Readable the simpler handwritten forms of a and g the non symmetry of letters such as b and d good sized descenders and ascenders generous spacing and excellent screen clarity Dyslexia com offer the font from their website Abigail Marshall commenting I am not utterly convinced that Lexie is superior to ComicSans my personal favorite which is also available to our users but I do have to note that as soon as I converted our site to the Lexie Readable view I immediately spotted a typographical error on the page that had previously eluded me Lexie has been accepted for inclusion in the site customization feature of the Dyslexia com web site When information about Lexia was put up on the Typophile Forums Vincent Connare suggested a better name might be Our Kid maybe Comic Sons I suggested Vincent mentioned that Dalton Maag already had a typeface called Lexia and I ve recently been persuaded to do the honourable thing and change Readable s name to Lexie The Non Solus Story Summer of Love Welcome to The Kernel If you re interested in fonts and the stories behind K Type faces this blog offers tender morsels of fonty goodness to satisfy the hungriest typeface gourmet Featured Fonts Keep Calm Savor Gill New Antique Transport New New Fonts Charles Wright Wildcat Barbica Deansgate Motorway Sinkin

  • The Non Solus Story | K-Type
    Joanna and found it to be more similar to Perpetua in many respects I also still felt it to have an identity of its own for me it has a real English schooldays feel Justin Howes of the Type Museum who sadly died early in 2005 noted I ve always liked Solus and it would be good to see it revived Mailartist and printer Alan Brignull sent me a high resolution copy of some Solus characters printed at 48 pt and I set to work on making a version that was as close to Gill s original as I could create A big problem was the actual shape of the slab serifs Even at 48 pt the serifs appear to have slight curved bracketing I acknowledge that this may well be an error James Mosley wrote My impression is that your bracketing however sutble is wrong because Solus is conceived as essentially a mechanistic type a light Egyptian Even so I have decided to allow myself to be guided by my observations Some Egyptians do possess curved brackets moreover Solus has a warmth compared to Joanna that is augmented by the subtle bracketing visible on the printed copy In September I contacted Robin Nicholas Head of Typography at Agfa Monotype and although he didn t invite me round for a coffee and a detailed look at Gill s original drawings he did recommend Gill s 1926 sketchbook A Book of Alphabets for Douglas Cleverdon as showing the origin of Solus and I immediately ordered a copy from Amazon He also noted I understand that there may be a legal problem using the name Solus Hence Non Solus is born A typeface which is as near to the spirit of Eric Gill s Solus as I have been able to make
