There is support for many languages that use latin script.
One of those design ideas that I really wish I had thought of. Not exactly jaw breaking typographic design, but the cute idea of A typography ass holes is pretty neat. Can you tell which A-ss hole is what?

As the ‘Typographic Desk Reference’ giveaway was so damn popular, I thought what else might cause such eager interest. So this giveaway pulls no punches, ‘FontBook’, or affectionately known in privileged circles as the ‘The Big Yellow Book’ by Fontshop, could be sitting on your desk in several weeks time.

Time for something different to giveaway. No Helvetica Moleskines, or Type Trumps, instead, this most essential resource book for type fiends everywhere. Yes, you too can have a copy of the ‘Typographic Desk Reference’ book sitting on your bed stand, as you lovingly caress it’s textured hard surface, and you marvel at the sheer majesty of this epic publication.
