Claus Eggers Sørensens choice was Capitolium News 2 by Gerard Unger, and Abril by Veronika Burian & José Scaglione was selected by Tim Brown.

iBook now includes Athelas

Apple released iBook 1.5, the new version of its mobile e-book reader application. Users will take advantage of a wide range of upgrades over previous versions, including an improved selection of fonts that includes the award wining Athelas. Designed by José Scaglione and Veronika Burian, Athelas is an attempt to go back towards the beauty of fine book design, inspired in Britain's literary classics. It takes full advantage of the typographic silence, that white space in the margins, between the columns, the lines, the words, the lettershapes and finally, within the characters themselves. It is a typeface with open counters, elegant curves and graceful serifs.
