1989 Magazine Marks Birth of LettError Wit and Wisdom

Written by Stephen Coles on December 4, 2008

Typorno / Type Design for Beginners, Part 1

Digital type wizard Erik van Blokland just posted a facsimile of LettError Magazine, published on MetaDesign’s color copier in 1989. It’s packed with dawn-of-digital nostalgia and the Dutch twins’ playful humor. There’s even a nice quick critique of the Bezier curve. The cover of FontShop’s recently published Font 007 has an uncanny, but unintentional similarity.

In other LettError news, Erik has revived a FontFont classic, FF Trixie, with enhanced detail, new features, and a dramatic trailer accompanied by Just’s guitar.
