let's twist again. fontomas is back, my batteries are not recharged to the max but there are some really nice fonts on there way into the spotlight. i'm starting with a dingbat font called I SPY (eins, zwei, kick him in the eye was to large...) featuring many versions of eyeballs.

in the meantime i've also started to work on the cd-rom, which will include some really funky (or should i say fonty?!) digital gadgets, pictures and movies. the edition will probably be limited to 800 copies, so you really have to hurry up when the sale starts at the end of november.
btw - more than 600 people decided to write us a mail that they are very interested in receiving one of the fontomas cds (info below) and they'll for sure be informed about the release some days earlier. that's great - thank you all!

one more thing: list bot has closed down its free mailing-list service. i've switched to a new one at topica, so pleeease renew your mail-subscription.

just click on the pic above to get a full view and to download the file - available for mac and pc.
use the latest version of stuffit expander to open the mac-archives.

after the first fontomas year we'll publish a cd-rom with every single font from this site (mac/pc) and many previously unpublished alphabets, not to mention the gloomy colored booklet.
so, stay tuned and keep your wallets well prepared to get one copy some weeks before xmas 2001. the whole profit will be given to a children's project by the international humanitary organization worldvision/germany.

the price should be something round 25 EURO / 25 $ + shipping. if you are interested in possibly purchasing one, - please drop me a note. no ordering at this time - it's just a good way to check how many items we have to produce.

more infos on the cd very soon.
