Whew! Is that Intel's new chipset? ;-) C'est magnifique.
Comment by geneus1 20th March 2010
Wow ! like Geneous, I am voiceless ! Surely a new classic microcircuit font ! BRAVO FRODO
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 20th March 2010
And Yes, blackfilled letters enhanced very much the chipset sensation

Magnificent! The more I looked at this, the more I became entranced by the organic, amoeba like, white 'blobs'. 10/10

I know you had many top picks but they did not give you the most important. This is for me your most extraordinary font so far. And very useful : I used it on the inner Title Page of my book of avant-garde erotic poetry "ENFENTE-MOI ET AUTRES IMPASSES PORNO". It is part of my very limited editions books series named TESTAMENT CONCENTRANT I am preparing now showing my graphic work, my textual work, and soon I hope my typographic work in sort of Catalogue Raisonné. I found your i and more generally the strokes on this font very evocative. It suited perfectly to illustrate these texts about absurd, impossible sexuality.

I made improvements on it, cause that Z alone had not enough sense in the page. So please hide the precedent version

You're onto something here: glyphs singing to a different hymnsheet. Very intriguing.
Comment by intaglio 4th May 2010
I almost forgot this work. Thank you all for your comments. I don't mind repeating myself, but your comments mean a great deal to me. Creating a font is half the fun, sharing it, and having your reflections, views from different angles, is the other half.

@geneus1: It certainly looks like one (CPU), but it wasn't my intention. I was only after the op art visual.

@neurone error: C'est genial. Thank you for discovering the potential in this font. Nice blend with your works, including John Thomas, and lovely color selection.

The dimensions of the book will be about 21x27,3 cms so I let you imagine the real size of your e on the page

@neurone error: When are you going to publish it? Could you send me a copy, signed, please?
Comment by Frodo7 5th May 2010
Sure, I will send you this one of the 5 copies (for now, I have not planned more, it is like a very, very luxuous visit card) of the first edition of this fascicule, but I have so much work untill then, because I want to make at least the first 12 fascicules of the Testament Concentrant at once and I am so perfectionist that I am afraid you will have to be patient.

The TESTAMENT CONCENTRANT emerged from despair of so many years trying to show my uncanny art without finding someone who would give it a chance to exist in some decent place in this world. Entering my forties and after more than 25 years of many many art paths in writing, drawing, photograph, music, video and recently typography, I decided to stop to waste my energy, the best of myself knocking at doors remaining closed, or to see people regarding you as piece of shit when they know nothing of you (I don't know how it is in your country but here it is very hard, whatever would be the quality or strength of your work, when you are not "introduced" in some VIP circles, or when you are not issued from a school that already put you on the rails). I decided to definitely kill in me any kind of hope, and seriously, patiently, elaborate a somewhat artistic testament, where I would as an alchemist put all these 25 years of intense creation debuted when I was in my teens, and try to transform it in the Gold of a completely new re-creation, a more mature and efficient Oeuvre, the very Oeuvre I want to bequeath to the next generations, when maybe by chance some historian archeologist in 3285 will find it and say WOW ! as some say today of completely unknown trasures manuscripts rediscovered.
Or maybe not, but do not want to wait and be frustrated anymore, I prefer keep the low energy of mine(I'm not in very good health actually, not the severe one, but the annoying one)to patiently elaborate my vision in the TESTAMENT CONCENTRANT as a giant CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ. And never mind if no one seems to be interested, I will have done it !
Generally, Catalogues raisonné are made when artists are near the end of a highly praised career, searching the most little roughs they made, even things they don't approve anymore, showing them for historical meanings , here it is exactly the contrary : it is the very beginning, I burn or transform all I don't want to bequeath, it is like a resurrection of the Phoenix, all that preceded were roughs, and nothing should be more important than this.
I want one more time thank you, Funk King, and all I was close here, because after all these years of collecting and admiring the work of the other typographers, I thought I was only able to use their work, you gave enough confidence to do mine. For now I make a break, I must advance in the Testament, but I'll come back, don't worry !
