The letter A in different fonts

The letter A in different fonts (Wikipedia)

I’ve been reading the posts on this website – The Book Designer – which contains a wealth of really useful information. I also appreciate that the blogger – Joel Friedlander – doesn’t make me go through hoops to find the articles he’s posted. Best of all, it isn’t one of those spammy sites that promises big, uses large fonts and blobs of bright colours, then makes you enter a user name or email address and password to get the material they claim is ‘free’. I hate that. People, listen up – I will spend 20 minutes searching for the download osmewhere else, because I don’t like to be held hostage like that.

One of the fonts I downloaded came with this licence agreement. I thought it was really neat. Here is the current website. And even better – it’s run by Canadians. Hooray for us!

Here is the “Read Me” from the original website: Archived here: and here:
