  13. As with OpenType it will take some years, before the majority of designers and major foundries, developers of font software and applications support the major features in such a way that the majority of users can use them without any trouble. As said before, it is only a matter of time. Right now many of us are experiencing trouble with variable fonts with more than one axis. Also taking care that Variable Fonts have the same design quality when they are based on existing families. It can be rather time consuming to support the same weight- and width-specific design changes. But these are things that can be overcome. I expect that Google, Adobe and Microsoft will replace their fonts with Variable Fonts, just as they did with Type1 and first generation TrueType fonts. Users will get used to this. The others will follow 🙂 All kinds of beautiful and interesting niches will be around with us for a very long time. Probably much longer than expected.

  18. By Adobe allowing this use which violates many independent foundries EULAs, it further erodes foundry income by fully eliminating the need for Adobe CC users to ever purchase any additional licensing for use on iOS devices.
  19. The Font Bureau/Microsoft version doesn’t seem to be available for licensing anymore. However, there is a cut from HiH. download at MyFonts
  20. Matt, book cover design of that era mostly employed custom-lettered typography, not typefaces—at least for the larger display type. Vaguely reminiscent of Romanisch and De Vinne, styles which inspired modern interpretations like Grand Central.

    Actually, no editing was required at all (all the characters I thought might be altered are readily available as alternate glyphs).
