Font-astic paper secures Nick's early release…

AT first I thought this comment on Daily Ireland’s fonts was going to be a spoof, but no… apparently there really is a Canadian company that designs typefaces called Shinntype. The company’s site tells us that Daily Ireland is the first newspaper to use the new ‘Nicholas’ fonts. “Nicholas will be released later this year” it adds without irony. You couldn’t make it up…

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.

    All fonts were designed by somebody, even this one.
