This is the new book on Fontographer 5.1. It’s has been great fun to go back to my roots, as it were and relearn the program that started me in font design. Fontographer is the app that started graphic design on the computer. It preceded Illustrator by over a year. It was the core that was developed into FreeHand.
This is digital drawing that is fun again!
As I got back into the application something remarkable happened. Gradually drawing became fun again. Much of what I do has become work because I do so much of it. Designing fonts in Fontographer 5.1 is fun again. If only others apps could be this simple, this easy to understand, this fast.
I’ve just released the 1st rough proof of the content without the front matter or cover. It’s fully formatted, but it needs comments and reviewers. If you are interested in helping, please email me. Until the official proof release, I’ll send you a PDF copy to proof for free.
