I received a brochure for the latest typeface from House Industries yesterday, called Eames Century Modern. I decided to record the opening of it as I was quite excited. What the camera didn't record was me weeping for joy at how nice a document it was. This is how you should launch any quality product.
The Eames family font is inspired by the Eames family lagacy, and so while the brothers didn't ever create a typeface, they provided inspiration for the House Industries foundry. There are 26 fonts in total in a full suite of weights, aswell as decorative borders, numerals and arrows. My favourites have to be the stecils and the poster numerals (which they brilliantly describe as pachydermic).
What's so remarkable about the catalogue is the amount of time and money that House Industries have clearly spent on creating a work of art and it really works. I was drooling at the some of the letterforms and cannot wait to find a job that will require typography as rich and varied as this. You can pick up your free catalogue here, and you can purchase Eames from the House Industries website here.
