You may know P22 as creators of the popular fonts depicting the handwriting of landmark artists such as Edward Hopper, Leonard da Vinci, and Paul Cézanne. But they are also responsible for “Indie Fonts”, comprehensive sourcebooks for many of the best small foundries. We gave “Indie Fonts 1″ high marks in 2002. Volume 2 is more of the same. Thanks to P22′s moving sale, it can be yours for $10, thirty bucks off the retail price. The sale ends June 17.
