If you've been following the blog you might have noticed that the posting has been sparse lately... for that I apologize. I hurt my back about two weeks ago and it's been painful to sit at my desk for any period of time (hi-lighting the need for a laptop!!). Anyway, it's feeling better so I am back - pun intended!
Now on to this week's Font Friday! How cute is Steinweiss Script?! I'm really digging the light version... so curly and girly!
Here's what MyFonts.com says about Steinweiss Script:
Steinweiss Script began its journey towards daylight when Michael Doret was asked by Taschen Publishing to do cover lettering for the huge commemorative edition they were putting together on the work of Alex Steinweiss—“The Inventor of the Modern Album Cover” . The lettering was to be created to appear similar to the famous “Steinweiss Scrawl” the calligraphy that Steinweiss had used on countless album covers.
While designing this piece of lettering, Michael realized that there was great potential for a font that was designed in the spirit of that famous “scrawl”. Through his contacts at Taschen Publishing, he was fortunate enough to be able to contact the Steinweiss family, and get the official Steinweiss approval to proceed with his “Steinweiss Script” project. Michael decided that in addition to giving the font his name as an homage, that he would donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this font to the man himself: Alex Steinweiss.
