    A history of the Icelandic character ð (eth) published by Crymogea. Toshi Omagari created this custom eth, which the book’s designer Gunnar Vilhjálmsson calls “the John Travolta eth”. The book also features what may be the first ‘fð’ ligature, designed by Fred Smeijers.

    The typeface is Metro Nova, a revival by Omagari of Metro’s original forms, soon to be released by Monotype.
