I went back through my photos of material from St. Bride, looking for anything usable as source material for Christoffel. There were several samples of the complete font, but all my photos are either too small, unfocused or at an odd angle to the page, giving a perspective distortion. Lens distortion is also an issue with some. To wit:

I have a few books with incomplete character sets, plus some running text in Van Dijck, but nothing comprehensive enough for my needs. Frustrating!

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
