fontomas is formerly known as eyesaw - the site is still available, but it'll rest in peace.
like we did for over 2 years now fontomas offers typographic experiments, downloadable for free.
envolved in the process of generating fonts are designers from the uk, the netherlands, sweden, italy, usa and germany.
