Hello fontlovers!

Finally, after more than 2,5 years, here's a brand new issue of Fond of Fonts. In case you don't know: the purpose of this newsletter is to promote fonts and font creators across deviantArt. Because fonts are the best, most addicitve thing since chocolate cookies, but sadly also majorly underrated and in dire need of more attention.

New in this issue is the Groups section. In my absence, fellow fontfreaks started several type oriented groups you might like to join. If you know of any other groups that should be added, please leave a comment.

With that said, on to the features!

Hey, ik vroeg mij af of je interesse hebt om Temple-of-Typefaces in de volgende post te vermelden?

Neuton verdient naar mijn mening ook extra aandacht, mocht je weer een grote font feature willen doen.

Ik las overigens zojuist dat je fan bent van Lucas de Groot. Mag ik vragen waarom specifiek Lucas de Groot? Ik heb zelf andere lettertype ontwerpers als idolen, maar wat ik mooi vind aan de lettertypes van Lucas de Groot is het teveel aan gewicht dat hij vaak in curves gooit om het een subtiele humanistische uitstraling te geven.

Ik heb toevallig mijn lettertypes aan Gerrit Noordzij kunnen laten zien. Verder heb ik Petr van Blokland eens gemailed maar hij heeft nooi iets terug gestuurd. Heb je overigens 'The Stroke' door Gerrit Noordzij gelezen? Met name voor lettertypes met schreef is dit een mooie theorie om eens gelezen te hebben. Het heeft mij in ieder geval nieuwe inzichten gegeven en een aantal concepten voor nieuwe lettertypes.

I agree about fonts needing more love. I adore making them and would love them to get more recognition.
