I'm a Sucker for Letterpress

P22’s Rimmer Type Foundry has released a new font, RTF Stern. That’s not so unusual; they are a type foundry, after all. What’s cool is that they’ve simultaneously released both a digital version and a metal version. Too cool. The creation of RTF Stern is also the subject of a documentary, Making Faces. A trailer for the movie is on YouTube.

(Update: In July 2012, P22 sold the Rimmer Type Foundry (RTF) to Canada Type, which plans to re-release the Rimmer fonts over the coming years. In the meantime, the P22 links above don’t work)
