[type] In Case You Ever Wondered How To Say "Tschischold"?


Well, even if you haven’t wondered, you’ll find this bit of stuff interesting. It’s a short list of how to pronounce various names of fonts and famous font artists, many of which are from Europe – typography is a global art, after all.

I was a little surprised. Though I had been correctly pronouncing Lubalin and Hermann Zapf for years, I had been mispronouncing Licko (Zusana Licko, the great co-founder of the Emigre house, is from eastern Europe) and Neutraface (pronounced litch-o and neu-TRA-face, respectively).

The rest of the list (Tschischold? Gesundheit!) yon hier (http://typophile.com/node/28051), wanderer.
