  1. OK, I’m sorry, this is my bad for not responding to the call for reviews — even after considerable lead time and reminders. Sometimes I think I’m just not qualified to judge typefaces, but I really should have responded to sweep up the crumbs. Then we would not have had the tragic loss of Paul Barnes’ typeface Marian to this list of also-rans.

    Had I done my duty it would be out there in front, because I think it it truly great, and smart and revolutionary. It is built on the skeletons of several classics of classified genres, and each is utterly elegant and beautiful. What you could do with this in magazine display type! How they work together while retaining their original qualities is astonishing. I’m deeply in love with this family, and only wish it came in text weights.

    Oh, and it was not named after me. Purely coincidental.
