    Historic Fonts

    Hi guys, I found a font so awesome, it's Kate Moss's logo, named Albroni, designed by Nico Schweizer in 1992.



    It's drawn originally by Alexey Brodovich - Harper's Bazaar art director - in 1950.

    It looks so great, but now it's in historic font category of Lineto foundry with some other fonts, they're not released?

    Link here to Historic font category of Lineto:
    http://lineto.com/1.0/index_23.html
    and here is Albroni font:
    http://lineto.com/1.0/content_36.html
    I can't find any website publishing them.

    I feel so so so so so excited with it, but how can I have it? Or I never have it? Anyone here knows about historic fonts?
    If you have problem with my links, PM me.

    I also long ago and since I'm interested in creating fonts, I take time to see what were some of the most important historical sources and I get to find this page:

    http://www.yeslists.com/historic-fonts/
    In there found a semi complete list of interesting historical fonts, I for my part can make reasonably accurate copies of almost any fonts, but until now I have not dared to do it, I could make this font, but not what say the other forum users, I think that the copies are not very well views but that's just my opinion.

    Wow, I just visit your link but still can't find Albroni font (just find some font like Trajan Pro - some fonts still published in Myfonts), maybe it's not published and just only in Lineto site now. Quite sad, anyway, thanks for your link.
    If you have problem with my links, PM me.

    There are many missing fonts in the list, but do not know them all, it is not a complete list anyway you can see some of the most important historical fonts, some are quite difficult to obtain, although the exact word that they are it would be unobtainable through normal means.
