I noticed it has been some time since I posted on one of my favorite things: typefaces. Just as I began my post, I received an email from my favorite type foundry Hoefler & Frere-Jones about their new release, Archer; It stopped me in my tracks. I have always been a fan of slab serifs and the sheer versatility of Archer is unbelievable. Forty styles and character sets to choose from could create one dynamic yet cohesive mix. It seems they have carefully refined every aspect of this typeface from the lining and old-style figures to the balance of slab serifs and terminal balls of a typewriter font. Regardless of whether you even understood the previous sentence, you will definitely recognize the quality of this extensive type family.
