font geekage

For those of you who think I am about to speak a foreign language - sorry, but this is awesome.

Someone on one of the lines I monitor was asking for help with a typeface they purchased not working correctly in Photoshop. Well, as soon as I saw the examples, it was obvious (though the question had already been answered) that actually, the font was only working correctly in photoshop - jim tells me fonts with alternates and ligatures don't always get the support they need in windows. Anyway, I went to track down the font itself because the alternates looked sooooo cool.

The font is Ministry Script by Veer. Guh.

"Designed by Alejandro Paul... According to Paul, his latest creation is “a time capsule that marks both the American ad art of the 1920s, and the current new-millennium acrobatics of digital type.”

Ligatures include standard, discretionary, contextual, and swash features. Ministry Script contains 99,814 kerning pairs

I have to say that again - 99,814 kerning pairs.

I have to go lay down now.
