Every month we sign up new foundries who provide innovative new fonts, some of which are wild and wacky, like Whoa Nelly, and others which offer an entire family of fonts, like Phollick, which comes in six styles. (Have you tried a search for "wacky" yet?) In this 3rd issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three of our top-selling new fonts. Click any of the samples to find out more:

Silentina

"In the early 1900s, star struck movie goers would flock to the local movie houses to see the latest release in glorious black and white. Short blocks of text told you where the story took place, who the heroes and villains were and other important details. When the actors and actresses, whose expressive faces filled the screen, had more to say, intertitles conveyed their message to the spellbound viewers. Now, you can convey your message with the same glamour and panache with two new fonts created to revive those unsung stars of the silent screen era, the intertitles. "

- Designer Ray Larabie
