    Here’s a seasonal announcement for all you font engineers out there:

    Select the tape recorder you like best … and start hinting!

    Just kidding. Enjoy your holidays, and thanks for your valiant work!

    First issued in 1904 (without any kerning, let alone hinting), Arnold Böcklin was rediscovered in the 1960s as part of the Art Nouveau revival. For info about Craig including more ads, see the Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording.
