Albertan was the first Jim Rimmer typeface to make the transition from metal to digital. And for very good reason. When the first roman face was cut at 16 pt. in 1982, it was intended for use in hand-setting limited edition books at Jim’s own Pie Tree Press, but it immediately perked the ears of text typography connoisseurs in the printing industry. It was hard to resist Jim’s expertly balanced approach to transforming the traditional roman model by infusing many transitional traits into the forms without sacrificing the integrity of the calligraphic influence or the functionality of the overall setting. Not to mention only Jim Rimmer could have made those almost-slab serifs work in such a face. A first post-Baskerville-post-Joanna, if you will.
