I’m stunned. Not only did a completely gorgeous contemporary typeface make its way onto the Freedom Tower cornerstone (Thank you once again, Pentagram), but the Times even did a decent story about Gotham and its inspirations.
It's the little things that make nerds happy.
This kind of publicity is great for the company that produces Gotham, and the attention paid to Gotham's designer, Tobias Frere-Jones, dovetails nicely with his recent promotion to full partner of what is now known as the Hoefler & Frere-Jones Foundry.
Update: And, of course, Gothamist chimnes in with commentary and a few extra links. (And yes, I believe the Frere-Jones gents are les frere.)
1) Melissa: I have Pentagram's enormous wall typography wall calendar in front of me right now. Thanks for letting us font geeks know about this - it is definitely gorgeous! (Jul 19, 2004 9:42 AM)
