LL: how ? why ?
The “LL” fonts serie was launched for Fuse 95 in Berlin. LL means “lustige lettern” [funny typefaces]. The first of the serie was the LL Faktotum (its working title was LL Old Rubberstamp) to rescue a beautiful old stamp writing of a flea market, which unfortunately suffered by the time assaults (70 years). It was to save it for future generations in digitalizing it. The scans took place in Augsburg and the fonts developed in the FuseLab. This font is available for free at Fontshop.
A bit about the L Regular: the original name is LL Rubber grothesque before it came to that name by Macintosh, Windows Web HTML missmatch.
