FUSE Classics is a collection of some of the most interesting designs from the first years of FUSE. The designers were asked to revisit the original fonts, and complete the designs.
Pierre di Sciullo comments on his contribution to the FUSE Classic package: In FF Scratched Out, each letter tries to disappear, mutilating itself. And in effect, each letter is illegible when viewed alone. But reunited within the context of words, they cannot obscure the meaning. Having the best spaces, proportions and shapes, closer to the FF Minimum fonts, Scratched Out book is conceived to give everyone the opportunity to print some books and newspapers, but with an inherent struggle built directly into the writing itself.
Cornel Windlin designed FF Moonbase Alpha in 1991 for FUSE 3 (theme: Disinformation). It was the first time that Windlin had used type-generating software, both FontStudio and Fontographer. Moonbase Alpha was based on an accident, a pixelated printout of Akzidenz Grotesk set at 4 point. ATM (Adobe Type Manager) had not been installed on the Mac and the Stylewriter printed what was on the screen. According to Windlin: I liked what I saw, cleaned it up, restructured and redesigned it a bit and fed it back into the Mac. Voilà Moonbase Alpha.
FF Stealth was designed by Malcolm Garrett in 1991 für FUSE 1 (theme: Invention). From the beginning it belonged to one of the most often used FUSE faces. That FUSE faces can be, in fact should be, used and modified as seen with Stealth in that it is often found as a positive version, without its black background squares.
FF You Can (read me) is Phil Baines’ 1995 version of F Can You (read me)? which he designed in 1991 for FUSE 1 (theme: Invention). According to Baines: At college in 1983 I had drawn an alphabet based on earlier research by Brian Coe into how much (or how little) of each letter is needed for legibility. Can You ...? was based on this alphabet but took the idea away from the essentials and played a little more with the resultant shapes.
