Wield the sharp serifs of insigne’s skillfully crafted Mandrel.
















From the realm of insigne, a new family has risen. By name, Mandrel. Courtly in character and elegant in appearance, the face finds great favor among those with whom it seeks audience. With confident air, Mandrel carries itself gracefully before each pair of eyes, never faltering or stumbling in its refined step.

But while dressed with gentility, this elegant family is not faint of heart when challenged. Crafted well for high-impact resistance, Mandrel steps boldly and prominently into the arena of the reader’s eye, boasting its tall x-heights, high contrast, confident bends, and sharp serifs. Skillfully, it wields its sharp serif endings, cutting swiftly through opponents’ crude clutter, which fights for the reader’s attention.

From Thin to Black, nine weights and their matching italics make up this noble family. Mandrel furthermore includes an abundant treasury of OpenType variables to adorn your text. Ligatures, old-style figures, and stylistic sets are available to accompany the family’s 500 glyphs and its support for more than 70 languages.

Raise your cup to this new Mandrel! With strong serifs and high contrast, you’ll find this champion ready to take up your challenge in many a test ahead.

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!
