Notes on LORVAD (formerly Printers Devil) fonts:
Albatross is a text body font with a moderately short x-height.
The relative point size is a bit small (i.e. 14 point is closer to
what most people would consider 12 point). It contains all the
regular characters and many special characters. Shareware $10.
Judas is a display font patterned on Adobe wood type Ironwood. It
contains only caps, numbers, and a few special characters. It
seems to look best at 16 points or larger. Very interesting
negative space It is shareware-$10 (or thirty silver dollars if
you want us to feel guilty).
LORVAD fonts include: Bodidly Bold, Oswald Black, Oswald Grey,
BlackForest, InkaBod, CartWright, Judas, Albatross, and Dedalus
These fonts are NOT demos. They contain all the regular
alphanumeric characters. Most contain an assortment of special
characters. Fonts contain hinting; usually over one hundred
kerning pairs are defined. AFM files are included. Bodidly Bold,
Oswald Black, Blackforest, Inkabod, CartWright, Judas, Albatross,
and Dedalus are type 1 PostScript fonts and may also be used with
ATM on non-PostScript printers. Oswald Grey , a type 3 font, may
only be used on PostScript printers. It has an 80% grey fill with
a black border. Bodidly Bold and Oswald Black look great in small
or large sizes. Id recommend using Oswald Grey at 24 points or
BlackForest and Inkabod are designed without any curves. With one
or two exceptions all angles are multiples of 45 degrees.
BlackForest has an old world German feel. It seems to look best
about 24 points. InkaBod is based on the bitmapped font Nordic.
On the LaserWriter it looks great at 14 points and above. On the
ImageWriter, try it at 18 points and larger.
CartWright is inspired by the Adobe wood type Ponderosa font. It
contains only the basic 90+ characters.
The bitmap screenfonts are just your basic Fontographer-generated
characters with minimal touchup. With ATM on the market Id
rather spend my time polishing up the PostScript file than slaving
over an archaic bitmap screenfont.
