Friedrich Nietzsche was born in Germany in 1844, during his time he was a philologist, philosopher, cultural critic, poet and composer. He showed fondness for study of critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, science, the metaphoric, the ironic and aphorism. He was also fond of Greek and Roman textual criticism, before he took on Philosophy he was appointed chair of classical philology at the University of Basel, the youngest at this position at age 24. He is classed as a paradoxical and open ended thinker because of his many texts, books and studies. Nietzsche is the creator of the famous quote “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” which was originally “Out of life’s school of war: what does not destroy me, makes me stronger.” from The Twilight of the Idols “Maxims and Arrows” sec. 8.
The font I chose is called Shonar Bangla which was supposed to be a Bengali typeface based on the Monotype Corporation’s Times New Roman but because my computer did not display the typeface in its true form and displayed it in its Latin form i saw it as a regular Latin form and thought it went well with my design.This is the typefaces true form.
Below is the font in its Latin form and under it is Times New Roman.
The Times New Roman font was created for the British newspaper The Times in 1929 when they hired a typographer named Stanley Morrison of the Monotype British font foundry who assisted Victor Lardent who worked for The Times as and advertising artist who drew the actual letterforms.
“After Monotype completed Times New Roman, it had to license the design to then-rival Linotype, because the Times used Linotype’s typesetting machines. (Think of Monotype and Linotype as the Depression-era Microsoft and Apple.) Since then, Monotype has sold the font as “Times New Roman” and Linotype has marketed its version as “Times Roman.”
