About this font family
A.LAGE typography was created by Manuel Lage in 1992 to create the logo of the Printing A. LAGE, initially was not a typography, only five glyphs created expressly, representing the press of a printing press, and the paper in the part central and hollow of each glyph, and an “L” representing the blades of a typographic machine Heidelberg, [which in turn was no more than a version of drawings of sources that I do to my notebooks in the school, take advantage of sheeps].
Later, in 1994, the rest of the glyphs were defined, including the “L”, leaving the logo as a modified glyph and giving a personal touch to the logo. Any version of that type is available for free for personal use by some websites.
That typography had different dimensions, perhaps less compensated, with less careful measures, surely by the more limited knowledge of the author in those years. In 1996 work began to re-draw the glyphs, creating a typography (I think it) better compensated, named LGF A LAGE LOGO, more attractive and with more personality.
At the same time that this work was done, a typeface appeared in which paper was more protagonist, and inspired by the effect of papyrus or origami, with three-dimensional effect, and that could also be combined with the original source, the two additional files called LGF A LAGE LOGO CENTURY, that although departing of the logo of our small printing house, is not part of the logo (to this day) but is clearly part of the printing press founded by my father. Several versions were made and now this version (3.0) is finished in the year 2016.
