FONT A DAY is a place for me to put some of the free/shareware/etc fonts I come across on my internet travels.. I am going to try to post at least one free font a day in a format that windows and mac people can use, and try to tell a little about the typeface and the designer whenever possible. If you have any questions about Font A Day please email me! if you are a font designer with some fonts you would like to share, email them to me or send me some links. if you are a font designer and i have wrongly posted your creation or mis-credited it, please let me know so i can fix that!

What is OTF?
A joint project between Adobe and Microsoft to produce a hybrid between Postscript Type 1 and TrueType, with additional features. Fonts consist of one file, with an extension of .otf and can contain both Latin and non-Latin characters, expert and extended characters, and additional styles such as old-style figures, small capitals etc. The same file can be used on PC or Macintosh. Built into Windows 2000 and XP, and available on earlier versions of Windows via Adobe Type Manager. (wiki)
What is TTF?
A vector font format, and until recently Windows’ native font format. Developed by Apple and licensed by Microsoft for use on screen and for printing. More widely used than Type 1 fonts, but regarded as the lesser of the two by type professionals. TrueType Open was an extension to the format introduced by Microsoft, but that too has now been superceded by OpenType format. (wiki)
