Mota Italic Postcard №2

Early 2013’s latest printed type promotional piece. This is another A5 postcard with an even more packed selection of current typefaces. This will certainly be the last postcard where I attempt to show all of our fonts on just 1/2 a sheet of paper.

Mota Italic Postcard №1

This A5 postcard was made in 2011 as a small promo item before TypeCon. It has a few updates to the (upcoming) type offerings, and was easier to carry from Germany to the US than the full specimen books.

Mota Italic Printed Specimen №1

Mota Italic's First Specimen Book

This was Mota Italic’s first printed specimen book printed in 2010. At 40 pages, with one typeface per page, the concept was quite unconventional making it look different from the typical type specimens one sees. While the novelty of its originality took it far, it did somewhat lack in the area of proper marketing and showing some of the features and infos that potential customers might have been interested in. Still, it was fun to make at to read through.

The World’s Smallest Specimen Book*
24 March, 2010

world's smallest specimen book centerfold

This booklet was made for TypeCon 2008 in Buffalo. It is A7 when folded (meaning it is 2.8″ x 4″) with 16 pages + 8 different cover options. The pronouncement of “World’s Smallest Specimen Book” was not confirmed (or looked into at all for that matter), so there is a handy disclaimer*

* Possibly. Maybe.

Specimen book size not actually verified.
Well, this is for sure the World’s Smallest Specimen Book made in July 2008 featuring the typefaces Gemma, Vesper, Unicase Monospace, Aurora (codename), Chef, and Beefeater.

[Update] Here is one tiny specimen book that has firmly knocked me off my throne: Types in the Cases of William M. Cheney – from 1961. This is an incredibly hard to find book (finder’s fee for anyone who can pass one along to me!) but Typesticker has some nice photos of it up on Flickr.

TypeCon ’06 Postcards
22 March, 2010

These little cards, created for TypeCon 2006, feature a motif based on some wire sculptures I was working on at the time. To make these more interesting, there are 2 different patterns for the youshouldliketypetoo.com logo, 4 colors for the ‘I Like Type’ statement, 4 different spray painted icons, and 4 different colors of paint! They are in a numbered edition of 300 and every card is totally unique with random combinations of colors and designs.
