Gerald Giampa R.I.P.

Master printer Gerald Giampa (b.1950) died of a stroke on Saturday June 20, 2009. Gerald was the owner of Lanston Type Co. from 1988 to 2004. We offer our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. His personal website has been kept intact since the acquisition of Lanston by P22 and will be kept as a memorial to one of the more colorful characters in the world of typography.

Caffe by Gabor Kothay was originally designed for the Artz Gallery Cafe in Budapest Hungary. The design is a contemporary handwriting style adapted from examples in lettering exercise books. It has been redrawn and expanded into six styles. The four weights were created by drawing the style using different mediums: Cappuccino in pen, Pastry in felt-tip, Lemonade in brush and Tobacco, the original, in pencil. Poster and Poster Inline are well suited for display purposes and round out the family. This font family is perfect for bistro menus or other European-flavored poster & print design.
