Typeface Review

Luxury

Reviewed by Kris Sowersby on July 11, 2007

The ideals of luxury items and exclusivity are inextricably linked to money. Luxury, by definition, is something that is inessential, a desireable item that is difficult or expensive to obtain.

Thankfully, a life of luxury is now within out reach! No longer shall we slum it with Helvetica, fake it with Trajan, or be shamed by out-dated Optima. The Luxury Collection is made available and affordable to us lowly typographic peons and our budget-conscious clients by the style mongers at House Industries. Finally, those bereft of class will be able to catapult their design and typography into the upper echelons of haute couture with ease. — Kris Sowersby
