Just this past weekend I was saying how much I wished the Guardian family designed by Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz was done with its exclusive contract with the Guardian and available to other people. Lo and behold, the time has come already. Yay!
That is, "Yay! I can imagine using them now," but I doubt I have any projects coming up that could justify the cost of buying a massive type family, no matter how pretty and awesome it is. It will be interesting is to see how designers work with the Guardian family and make it the projects look like something other than the Guardian.
Today's mission is to hunt around and see who's actually selling it, and then invent ways to justify paying for a license.
1) Stephen: I think Porter jumped the gun a little bit because he saw an early edition licensed to the Dagbladet. The Guardian family will be available from Commercial Type (Schwartz's and Barnes' foundry) sometime this year. (Apr 30, 2008 12:05 AM)
2) Sparky: Thanks for the tip, Stewf! I knew the internet would come to my aid. Even if I still have to wait a bit, I'm excited to know I'll be able to get my hands on that family soon. I've been dying for it. (Apr 30, 2008 1:16 AM)
3) Gerben: Oh my God! When you're talking about the devil! (Dutch expression, not sure if it makes sense in English but anyway, whoo!) (Apr 30, 2008 1:24 AM)
