- An outstanding values in the world today if you're looking for
- __ The Design & Publishing Center is
proud to introduce you to the most unique value in the entire graphic arts industry.
The Great American Font Works CD from Silver Graphics is a font
collection you cannot afford to pass up...
132 decorative display fonts, UNLOCKED on CD-rom!
These fonts are clean.
__ In terms of craft -- Silver spares no toil.
All the control points are set by hand, and the kerning sets are developed by eye...
NOT by the machine. The outline and inline fonts as well as some of the parallel-line
fonts are superb. Even some high-decorative fonts are included that only Letraset
has matched in their rub-down type!
__ Take a look at the font "I-Beam"
demonstrating vector excellence. When I first showed that art around, everyone
said "...boy, that's a lot of work there, Fred!" Of course, I just smile...
I'd never admit that all I did was keystroke it!
__ Silver Graphics lays claim to the "fun"
in fontmaking, and we have to agree. Leave the plain to other font companies and
look to silver for excitement. Unique is the keyword for Silver's fonts. The outline,
inline and dropshadow fonts are absolutely the best I've seen in the industry for
quality. Even Adobe shies away from outlines and decorative, 'illuminated' fonts
- but not Silver.
- __ "Almanac"
is one of the fonts I was thrilled to see in this collection. I happen to like the
old style and antique font families. I was hand lettering the antiques long before
there was PC computer typesetting. Being in the historic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia,
many of my clients are either very traditional, or actually deal with historic subjects.
Almanac is one of those fonts that is so lyrical that it compliments almost any publication
as a display font.
Is another great font from the collection, this one hailing from the late Nouveau,
early Deco period. This one's particularly special because it allows easy modifications,
and its open spaces can be filled and manipulated!
