From the Typophile (http://typophile.com/node/13818) web site — an announcement of an interesting font marketing consortium:

Village (http://vllg.com/) is a type co-op. We are the union of nine (soon to be twelve) young type foundries who have decided to go it alone, together. vllg.com is the information channel and boutique storefront for this group of equals.

The nine foundries are:

Feliciano Type Foundry (Mário Feliciano)

Joshua Darden

KLTF (Karsten Lücke)

Lux Typographics (Michael Rey, Greg Lindy)

Orange Italic (Christian Schwartz)

Thirstype (founded by Rick Valicenti, with contributions from Barry Deck, Magnus Rakeng, Patric King, chester, Frank Ford, Patrick Giasson, Claudio Piccinini, and soon Hugo d’Alte)

Type Initiative (Michail Semoglou, Keith Chi-hang Tam)

Underware (Akiem Helmling, Bas Jacobs, Sami Kortemäki)

Village (chester, Tracy Jenkins)
