JAF Peacock is a display family inspired by the flair typefaces of the 1970s. It contains more than 1,200 glyphs, and offers the designer a complete toolbox of contex­tual and styl­istic altern­ates as well as exten­ded language support. JAF Peacock was produced in a collab­or­a­tion between Brian Jara­millo and Tim Ahrens. Jara­millo completed most of the glyphs in Illus­trat­or, and contac­ted Ahrens for refin­ing the typeface and setting up the Open­Type features.

    York­shire pudding is a staple of the British Sunday lunch and in some cases is eaten as a separ­ate course prior to the main meat dish. This was the tradi­tional method of eating the pudding and is still common in parts of York­shire today. Because the rich gravy from the roast meat drip­pings was used up with the first course, the main meat and veget­able course was often served with a parsley or white sauce. Tradi­tion­ally, though less so now, the York­shire Pudding could be served as a sweet, with sugar or even with orange juice as a sauce. It is often claimed that the purpose of the dish was to provide a cheap way to fill the diners, thus stretch­ing a lesser amount of the more expens­ive ingredi­ents as the York­shire pudding was tradi­tion­ally served first.
