Oops, Peter Bruhn is talented indeed, but he didn’t design Sauna. That was Underware.

Oops indeed. Thanks for pointing it out Steph, I’ve corrected it now.

I do hope more people will add stuff to my font crushlist too.

What’s flair, you ask?

Pirouette from Dan Reynold’s on Typophile’s thread on contemporary-looking scripts. Apparently, “Ryuichi Tateno was influenced by Zapf’s work when he worked on this project” and “Hermann Zapf is a fan of the typeface.”

Does anyone still have Bookman Swash??
I bought it from ITC Fonts and it’s an incomplete set!
Astounding but true.
Please please help.
