Specimen from

A package arrived in the mail today and Rue ornament is on the cover of TypeTogether's font catalogue 2009. It's a thrill to see how Rue is being applied.

The content page of featured fonts and respective designers.

A double-page spread.

I know I am anal and probably more so than ever as I stare at this page. Other than the fact that the italics are not printed in its final form (simply because it's not done yet), I can't help but feel Rue is not 'used correctly'. It's like losing sleep when I sold my first painting. Geez, I need to learn that they don't belong to me anymore...

The modified italic below compared with the above ex-italic.
