Shift Happens: A book about keyboards
Member Ric… posted a news entry in Typography Weekly #126Marcin Wichary on Kickstarter: “Keyboards fascinated me for years. But it occurred to me that a good, comprehensive, and human story of keyboards – starting with typewriters and ending with modern computers and phones – has never been written. How did we get from then to now? What were the steps along the way? And how on earth does QWERTY still look the same now as it did 150 years ago?”
Typography Legal Question [HELP!]
Member Fun… posted a topic in TalkHi all, So we've designed a playing card deck which has Typography theme to it. I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience and can share some advice whether or not we will be running into any legal issues down the track. This is for a Kickstarter campaign which we are planning to launch soon, which means it is for commercial purposes (but will be a one-time print run). Someone has flagged it with us that we may get sued for this (we'd be getting sued by several font owners if that is the case, which we do not want fall victim to!). What we did: Created font pairings using System Fonts from Windows and Mac operating systems (so no external downloads of fonts was used and we won't be distributing any of these font files either, just the distributing the printed decks if we get funded on Kickstarter). Added the name of the fonts we used for each font pairing (shown at the top and bottom of each card) - see attachment for a photo of the cards. We did do some prior research to check whether if we can use windows or mac fonts for commercial purposes and it didn't appear there would be any issues Windows Fonts https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/fonts/font-faq Apple Fonts https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7493969 We have even printed the physical mock-ups and created marketing material already, so we'd really be grateful if anyone could shed some light on this, whether it is safe to proceed or ditch and don't risk it. We see it as a reference deck, so we are merely using different fonts and referencing the fonts we used to create those combinations. Thank you in advance!

Kickstarter: Reviving the blackletter font Wiking
Ralf Herrmann posted a news entry in Typography Weekly #99“The Wiking font was designed by Heinz König and published in 1925 by the type foundry J. D. Trennert & Sohn in Hamburg. This unique and contemporary blackletter design has never been professionally revived. But you can help make it happen. If this campaign reaches it funding goal, a careful and complete digitization of the font will be created from the original letterpress font and offered for free under the Open Font License.”
