a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Do they make font books anymore? I've made use of them in the past, from my library in Ukiah, California, but from my few visits here in Washington to some local libraries, it seems like they' ve gutted out much of the old books, and I'm afraid they may not have any.
I've tried some Net research, but most seem to refer to on-line sources that have be downloaded and installed in your wordprocessing program. I've tried this kind of thing, but without success, and I'd rather just do it the old-fashioned way, by photocopying from a book or books.
I guess designers are creating new fonts all the time, but most of these are probably only available on the Net. Is there a website that just displays them so they can be printed, not dowloaded for installation in a wordprocessing program?
Again, I'd prefer books, with as many kinds of fonts as possible, but failing that, websites that displayed whole printable alphabets would be a second choice, even though I find these slow and tedious to search or browse.
The font I have in mind is hard to describe, but it might be "horror". The letters are sort of in the shape of a triange, point down. They may or may not be "drippy". Also, I'd be interested in a "Soviet" font, which I hope is self-explanatory.
Thanks in advance.
