UPDATE 17-07-2007 Get Machinato here (with a 75% discount until July 31st)!

---

So yeah, I changed the name of the font. Turned out someone else had already taken Morticia :( :shrug:
Machinato (pronounce Ma-ke-na-toh) is sort of a tribute to the Italian lessons I'm taking at the moment. 'In machina' was the first sentence I learned :D

There are now 10 different styles in the font family (extralight, light, regular, semibold, bold and their oblique counterparts). I think I will be finishing it this or next week.

I'm still in doubt if I should sell Machinato on Myfonts or try to get it included in the linotype library. That'd be awesomely cool but I don't know how much I would earn from the sales and if the font is good enough...

While I ponder some more about the above issue, please enjoy the preview!

By the way, I think the name 'Machinato' is way better than 'Morticia' which sounds quite sinister. Morticia really doesn't fit your design in my opinion.

Absolutely wonderful design! I particularly like the design of the 'b' and the bottom of the stem of letters like 'a' and 'u' going inwards.

This is gonna be my first font buy :)
I think you've done a great job and want to support you. I wish I could afford the whole pack though. Maybe some other time.

I just checked the letters for Esperanto (they are considered distinct letters and have their own dictionary sections) and they look great! :)

This sound like a great question to float at Typophile.com, if you ask me. Get the answer straight from the horses' mouths. Also, do a search, since I'm vaguely recalling several discussions about this specific topic.

I always buy my typefaces on MyFonts because of the convenience and the bulk discounts. I might buy through Linotype's FontExplorerX if it had the discounts and was in general just a better store.
