|Notes :||"The text of the essays has been set in 11-point Fenway, a typeface designed by Matthew Carter in 1998 for Sports Illustrated magazine. The design of Fenway was inspired by the types of two illustrious punchcutters who worked for the Enschedé Type Foundry at Harlem in the Netherlands: Johann Michael Fleischmann (1701-1768) and Jean Francois Rosart (1714-1774). The custom version of Fenway used in this book was developed in OpenType format, by John Hudson of Tiro Typeworks, Vancouver, BC. Fenway's character set was significantly expanded to accommodate the numerous special sorts necessary for the typesetting of this book -- many of these additions to the original font complement were created by the originator of Fenway, Matthew Carter, at the request of the book production team. Fonts belonging to the Vincent family - Vincent Medium, Vincent Display, and Vincent Banner Drop - have been used for all display elements in this book's essay section, its front and back matter (for larger size headings, titles, initial capitals), and also its cover. Vincent, designed by Matthew Carter in 1996 was first used in Newsweek magazine in 1999. Vincent's design is based on early type of Vincent Figgins (1776-1844), an English punchcutter whose foundry remained in operation until 1908. PT New Letter Gothic has been used for the typesetting of the text and headings in the bukva:raz! section of this book. PT New Letter Gothic was designed by Gayanch Bagdasaryan for Para-Type, Moscow, in 1999. Its design is based on Letter Gothic, a typeface originally developed by Roger Robertson in 1956-1962 as a single-weight, monospaced font for IBM electric typewriters. PT New Letter Gothic comes in two versions: Latin and Cyrillic"--Colophon.|
