"FREEDOM OF CHOICE"
As we gear up for our presidential elections here in the US, everyone is focusing on one big decision between two choices. At T.26, we like to spin the issue... More Choices and Smaller Decisions! Added to the ballot this month are two complementary front-runners by Chris Dickinson, 'Faricy' and 'Faricy Stencil.' Don't understimate the nuance Dickinson invests in his conservative delivery -- put these fonts to the Typesetter test. Alongside Faricy, Dickinson reaches out to the postmodern conceptualist base with 'Fold,' a design constructed on a principle of 'folded-ribbon' stroke formations. Josep Patau also addresses text issues with 'Gopal.' Patau explains his multiple point plan for 'Gopal's design: he used a calligraphic brush tip in his vector art editor to stroke a simple glyph skeleton, then made adjustments to the outlined letterforms for a humanist touch. True italics earn Gopal the family-values vote, while its runningmate 'Gourmet' gets the Revivalist party nomination. Patau has digitized Morris Fuller Benton's 1917 design 'Sterling.' Ohyun Kwon enters the race with his first T.26 release, 'Goodnight' which is considered by some to be a typographic repeal of anti-rave legislation. Jim Marcus also rustles some grassroots support for nightclub lobbyists. 'Gemini-X' is his latest incentives package, which I personally co-sponsored with a 50px bitmap supplement. Veto or filibuster!

Faces of Halloween
What's an October Font Showcase without a Halloween feature? Purely un-American! No matter what time of year, the sinister appeal of these typefaces and dingbats won't go stale like that stash of miniature coconut-almond candybars leftover from last year's Trick-or-Treat bowl.
