Current Hackberry font packages for sale are below. Fonts were a major part of my creative efforts from the mid-1990s until 2010 or so. This design focus finally culminated in my most popular book, Practical Font Design using FontLab, which was written in the Spring of 2009. In the summer of 2011, I added Fontographer: Practical Font Design for Graphic Designers. Now I have begun adding video training. Plus, I am designing fonts again.
As an aside, be careful of beautiful type!

  5. FYI, I have found it necessary to embed fonts in my epubs because support for Sanskrit transliteration, Sanskrit and Bengali is not there in the readers; even ADE does not support even the transliteration. And this brings me to my question to you …

    Do your font sets include the Sanskrit to Latin transliteration characters? Namely those in the ISO 15919 standard? If not, would it be permissable for me to modify your fonts for publication? PS a text sample would be nice.
