A sight of stability and grace, Mr. Darcy is greatly enabled to lead your work.









Only occasionally are we graced with a font so pleasant and enjoyable to our company as the wonderfully amiable Mr. Darcy. Even the most casual study of the face conveys to the reader a character not refined overnight but through careful trial and concentrated effort. The gentlemanly elegance of this yet contemporary font so easily calls to mind such Victorian estates that one imagines in many a classic of Ms. Austin or Ms. Eyre.

The elegant and very graceful Mr. Darcy is sufficiently compete with its additional characters--to be stated more precisely, over 136 defining alternates. These optional features are carefully displayed within the supplied brochure.

The employ of the Mr. Darcy family moreover demands that you see to the matters found in the User’s Guideline for all OpenType options and that you employ a program such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe PhotoShop, CorelDRAW, or Quark that supports OpenType features. Such OpenType options exist to help you develop and display your vision uniquely. It should be noted as well that Mr. Darcy with its five distinct weights offers you the versatility of character as possessed only by a refined gentleman.

A sight of stability and grace, Mr. Darcy is greatly enabled to lead your work as it dances airily in good humor across the page. One should not be so sorry to make himself more acquainted with this face and even to engage it in further matters of business in the future, thereby finding himself at so happy an end of satisfaction and success.

Carta Marina

Carta Marina is based on the titling found on the famous map drawn by Olaus Magnus in 1539. The map of northern Europe took 12 years to complete, and the total size is a huge 1.7 meters tall by 1.25 meters wide. More information about the map, as well as the high resolution reference document used to create the typeface and illustration set can be found at the James Ford Bell Library, University of Minnesota. The titling is slightly aged, very sturdy and elegant. Carta Marina includes a full set of OpenType alternates for every character in the English alphabet, oldstyle figures, historical forms, small caps and 64 discretionary ligatures. These ligatures are used to alter the appearance of the type so that the printing appears realistic and without any duplicate letters to detract from the antique appearance. The Carta Marina family also includes some of the unique illustrations that give the map much of its character. It includes depictions of fanciful sea creatures, land animals a

Microsoft Expression

I have been trying out the Microsoft Expression web design program recently. My final verdict: I like it better than Dreamweaver. I’ve been using Dreamweaver for 5 years now, but where Expressions really shines is its handling of CSS, which is, in my mind, quite a bit better than Dreamweaver. My “problem” with CSS as opposed to tables is that with tables you can visualize what you are doing. CSS is a bit more programmatic. Expression helps a bit. If you are looking to save some money, and you use a PC, you should download Visual Web Developer. You can do some very advanced stuff with this program, and the interface is very much like Expressions. The price is right: free! However, Expression is more intuitive in how it handles CSS. It’s very interesting how Microsoft is starting to head into Adobe’s turf. Microsoft is working on equivalents to everything in Adobe’s product line. My long term bet is on Microsoft.

New from insigne: Mynaruse

Mynaruse is an elegant and regal roman inscriptional titling family. It has sharp and elongated serifs that give the face extra punch. The face shines in settings that call for elegance and splendor. Mynaruse’s six weights range from a fine, delicate thin to a powerful and solid heavy weight. Mynaruse includes many useful OpenType features, including a set of swash alternates, alternate titling forms, ligatures and miscellaneous alternates. OpenType-capable applications such as Quark or the Adobe suite can take full advantage of the automatically replacing ligatures and alternates. This family also includes the glyphs to support a wide range of languages. Mynaruse is 1/3rd off for a limited time!
