Printed books: $19.95 eBooks $9.99 PDF $7.77

Warm Comfortable fonts for beautiful Typography

Producing readable OpenType Fonts that are designed to be inviting to your readers.

Our font designs are a direct response to my career focus: typography, page layout, font usage, and readability. We continuously work to design new fonts that will work better and be more beautiful for book, magazine, and booklet design.

Our fonts are unique in offering only proportional numbers in three sets: proportional lining (caps), proportional oldstyle (lowercase), and small caps figures, in all our OpenType Pro fonts designed for page layout in books, magazines, and newsletters. In addition, we offer an increasing set of discretionary ligatures, swashes, and alternative forms to make your copy more elegant and good looking. We try to design weights that we actually need in our designs, but that varies widely with the different type families.

If you have any special font needs, let us know and we will be happy to help. Click here to ask.
