    ¶ The Novarese project is now a reality, my friends. They reached the planned amount of money. What a relief! More than 340 persons supported this book project.

    ¶ I just received a message from Archivio Tipografico announcing that their goal was reached. Please read this:




    Dear Backers,

    Thank you for your amazing support and enthusiasm for this project. We're truly touched and grateful for the passion you manifested. We can't believe we reached the goal in only five days!

    We always felt confident that people around the world were wanting to study and research more about typography, type design and the figure of Aldo Novarese. The success of this campaign is for us a great confirmation, but it is also a manifestation of how much you believe in our work and this makes us incredibly proud.

    After this perfect start, the campaign isn't over. We will keep the hard work going over the next 26 days, carrying on spreading the word, aiming to deliver Alfa-Beta to all the typography enthusiasts around the globe and keeping you proud to have contributed to this project.

    Thank you again for your help and support.


    Archivio Tipografico, Matilde Argentero and Lorenzo Bolzoni
