Typeface Review

Other Notable Font Releases of 2013

Reviewed by Stephen Coles on March 11, 2014

The typefaces below are among the thou­sands of 2013 releases that didn’t make this year’s list. In contrast to previous annuals, this group of “honorable mentions” is a smaller one. Think of it as a sort of “editor’s picks”. These are the typefaces that I personally felt were worthy of selection — they just didn’t happen to be among our writers’ favorites.

  1. Kai Rentola says:

    One silly mistake there: Nuevos Jarno Lukkarila, Typolar
    The name of the font should be NEUVOS which refers Councilor in Finnish language.

  2. Thanks, Kai! Amended.
