New Frank Lloyd Wright fonts?

Post by Guest99 »

Picked up some news from what appears to be a relatively new website: www.prairiemod.com



The folks over there are saying that P22 is working on a new font. Has anyone else heard about this? I have to say that I'm a bit bored with the other 3 they already put out. They are sadly getting overused.



BTW, has anyone heard of a mystery font that was put out using the Unity Temple lettering style? I'd like to get my hands on that.

i understand that you are bored with the p22 fonts and agree that the "unity" font would be nice to resurrect. here's another font suggestion that is far from boring and has a flw connection in a round-about sort of way:



Architectuur NF



Letterpress type, crafted by H. Th. Wijdeveld, founding editor and chief designer of the legendary Dutch art and architecture magazine Wendingen, provided the inspiration for this typeface. The original design graced a 1925 issue examining the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, and Wijdeveld created his typeface by assembling bits of standard brass rules. This version features several of the meanders typical of Wijdeveld

In answer to questions regarding the Unity font - this was developed by a volunteer who is a graphic designer.



There were problems with the copyright and some of the software so you will not see this specific product again but we are working on a new, improved version.



Call 708-383-8873 or e-mail info@utrf.org if you would like more information of the Unity Font or other UT related issues.



Thanks --

The new Frank Lloyd Wright font discussed originally in this post has been released. You can read about it at www.PrairieMod.com



What is everyone's reaction to the new font? Has anyone purchased it yet? If you could suggest a FLLW source to have a typeface developed around, what would it be?
