Calming the Font Wars

We’re all aware of just how much anger the Comic Sans font can inspire here on the world wide web. Thankfully, hotheaded typography fans can now calm themselves down with Gandhijifonts – a series of 12 different international fonts designed around the iconic eyeglasses of Mahatma Gandhi.

The website explains the goal of the pacifist-inspired fonts this way:

We perceive the fonts to be a medium of expression that a man can use, not only to follow the Mahatma’s vision but also to start a revolution of his own, where the fonts will give the power to one’s words. With these, we hope to inspire the youth of today to look at the world through his eyes.

All of the fonts can be downloaded on the Gandhijifonts website.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
