Noel Gallagher may not read it
Noel Gallagher’s statement that reading fiction is a “fucking waste of time” and readers are “putting themselves a tiny little bit above the rest of us” – is a valuable contribution.
Cathy Nicol: Isle of Joy
Vince Smith met bandmates Jim Kelly and Nancy Gibbs at a Sex Pistols concert, where he tried to kiss Sid Vicious’ guitar and got a bloody nose. Together they formed Aftershock, and for a while they made a lot of noise, a bit of money and caused a sensation wherever they went.

FF Tundra is a narrow serif typeface with stressed forms and soft contours. Its concept grew out of an investigation into narrow letterforms and optimal readability. To avoid a fence-effect, FF Tundra’s letterforms emphasizes horizontal movement. Designer Ludwig Übele combined strong serifs and flat shoulders (see n) with open counters and heavy endings (see a, e, c) with a moderate degree of stroke contrast to achieve a balanced, legible typeface that is soft and humanist.

FF Tundra was designed for use in continuous text, but it is also suitable for general use in magazines and for headlines – especially the Extra Light. Extensive tests conducted by one of the major German weekly magazines Stern have proven that FF Tundra is one of the best modern serif typefaces for gravure printing. The design’s characteristics are sure to work in newspapers as well. The family consists of six weights from Extra Light to Bold, each with Italics and Small Caps and many OpenType layout features.

FF Tundra received a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design at the 2011 TDC2 competition and was selected for the annual review of Typographica’s favorite typefaces of 2011.
