Fanwood by chemoelectric Fanwood by chemoelectric
Current version: 1.1

Includes small caps, oldstyle and lining figures, proportional oldstyle figures, fractions, superscripts and subscripts, support for lots of languages. Starting with version 1.1, includes Fanwood Text, which is the same as Fanwood except with slight darkening and slightly reduced contrast. (My main goal for Fanwood Text was to improve readability on a Kindle 3 e-book reader.)

Based on a popular hot metal typeface, but with the name changed to protect the innocent. :) For more information, see [link]
(The image there is of another digital version, not the original.)

Free for both personal and commercial use.

A lovely font. I use it in a skin for an ebook reader here.

i love your style, everything what you had shared here and undoubtedly going to share in future to be submitted ...
Thanking you every time when i try to write something personally among our society in Alphabetical sentences(yeah in my defective English) ... :meditate:
Thanking your share always.
p.s. Recently, i tried to find nice font for "Greek Alphabets" , yes alpha, beta, gamma, delta and so on ..., however i could not find sufficient fonts anywhere, thus i might be very much to appreciate if you could introduced, of course in your taste or further more in your own font(s), those very much cultural and sophisticated letters for my small artwork here in dA .. :bow:
Sorry to give you such discourteous "personal asking" in the public. :bow:

Maybe you are anxious to hear this kind of matter, so there might be a some "hint" what i need to ask this kind of matter ... please go and check what i am standing against the wall now ... [link]

Unfortunately there are many things I would like to do but can’t because I am somewhat physically disabled. :( You might find the AMS Euler math fonts useful: [link]
:bow: Thank you for your introduction, highly appreciated. :bow:
