Miyagi Typeface: Tribute to Letraset Yagi Link Double

miyagi type face

Thanks to Alex Haigh of ThinkDust for making my day. I love looking though my old 1970s/80s Letraset catalogs, so I’m really excited to see that someone has finally created a digitized version of the Yagi Link Double typeface. Alex has put in hundreds of hours to create the upper and lower case 255 character set which he calls Miyagi.

I just fired up Illustrator and gave the typeface a test drive. It looks great. This makes me want to break out the Letraset catalogs and see what other typefaces I’m missing.

Technical details: 255 character set upper and lowercase, full ascii characters, opentype format compatible with pc and mac, full manual kerning.

You can purchase the Miyagi typeface at Alex’s new foundry HypeForType

Nice font. I got the Letraset catalogues out last week looking for a font and was amazed at all the cool fonts that I had totally forgotten about!

I’ve got this Letraset for this except it’s called YAGI LINK. Really fresh.

Uhhhh I probably should have actually read the entry before commenting on the image.

looks awesome. great work there. :-)
