About Jantze Font Family

The Jantze font is a project undertaken by Dan Bailey of Fontosaurus and Michael Jantze, creator of the nationally-syndicated comic strip, The Norm.

All their royalties from the font will go to The Lance Armstrong Foundation. For those that have been living under a rock for the last five years, Lance is a professional bike racer that overcame advanced testicular cancer to not only come back to his sport, but to dominate its premiere event, the Tour de France. In climbing to the top of his sport, he has become a legend among cyclists and a beacon of hope for those battling cancer and their families. His foundation provides financial grants to researchers working to improve our odds against the disease, individuals stricken with cancer, and survivors of the disease that are advocates for survivorship issues in their communities.

Michael Jantze and Dan Bailey would like you to consider the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that brought us to this project: "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

We hope that you will help us help Lance Armstrong's legacy be more than that of just sports legend. We hope that you will help those that may someday help you as much as we hope that you will never have to suffer the ravages of cancer.

We hope.

About Fontosaurus

Fontosaurus started life as an issue of curiousity, back in 1996. Dan Bailey was a student at Mankato State University (now Minnesota State University-Mankato) and working in the computer lab to bring in money for beer, etc. About that time, he was promoted from lab supervisor (read: "verbal punching bag for irate students") to Multimedia Specialist. This was probably to get him off the floor and into an office where his mouth would do as little damage to the image of the lab as possible. While in that little office, he discovered Chank! fonts. He was totally friggin' hooked. This led to the purchase of a very pricey PowerMac system, a domain name, and a lot of studying -- looking at type, reading books, etc. There was a period in 1999 where laid dormant because Dan was knee-deep in the dot-com world. It came back to life in 2000, and then went fallow again in 2001 after he lost his dot-com job and had to spend a ton of time doing goofy things like looking for a job, selling plasma for grocery money, etc. The end of 2002, brought on age 30, and 2003 seems to be brining stability and sanity back to Dan's life, which means he'll have considerably more time for fonts and related fun. Stay tuned.
