...this much fun should be illegal!
Nick Curtis has given us a number of great fonts, but I think this one is probably the most fun of all!
"All aboard! They’re here — those wacky little bigheaded guys found in “mortised cuts” from the thirties are now appearing in this dingbat font. Lovingly redrawn (not scanned) from authentic historic sources, these megalocephalic mugs will add warmth and charm to any project graced with their presence."
This collection has something for just about everyone, and the most fun will be coming up with captions for them, or using them to illustrate a point in your publication. For instance, I might start using the "excited editor" for my Editor's column! I've also included a full font sample here for you as well.
Nick is a member of the Internet Type Designers Association and has designed dozens of great fonts of all kinds -- from shareware to commercial fonts available from the leading foundries.
You can download these fonts for both Macintosh and Windows from links posted in the Publishers' Warehouse Loading Dock.
