MyFonts newsletter of features and fonts - Jan. ’06 (issue 22)
already broken all of our New Year’s resolutions except one:
providing you with the hottest new fonts at MyFonts! This month’s
Rising Stars features an elegant, elaborate script; a comic
font with personality; and a connecting script in OpenType Pro format.
And in Design Trends, we look at Valentine fonts.
IN THIS ISSUE: Three Rising Stars, Did You Know?, Design Trends, Follow-Up,
Have Your Say
we provide new, innovative fonts and sign up new foundries. In this
22nd issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three

is a new ornate script from Wiescher Design. The designer tells
us while he enjoyed making the font, the creation process was extremely
time-consuming. It is quite a challenge to make calligraphic letters
work on computers so that they join perfectly!
with comedy in mind, ZOOOM
is a chunky, comic book sound effects font with personality! ZOOOM
would look great on everything from birthday invitations to packaging
for toys. For added wackiness, the uppercase characters are staggered
on the baseline. ZOOOM comes in two weights, regular and italic.
Sonora is a new family in the
OpenType Pro font format. It comes in six styles: light, medium, bold, and the corresponding
italics. Sonora is a very distinguished, elegant and versatile script font.

the Best Sellers

I had no luck until I found this website. I was able to find the Collins
