That showroom shine.

Well, adjust my tracking and call me Caslon. Adobe finally freshens up their languishing type products page, renaming it the Adobe Type Showroom. However, once again they’ve neglected to add any new typefaces in the process. The pimped-out, pop-up type browser interface is kinda nice, as is the Flash®-based OpenType tour, but where’s the stuff that keeps customers coming back for more? Surely someone in those shiny towers realizes that you can actually sell new typefaces … not just give them away with every major release of the Creative Suite?

Or … maybe not.
