Showker's September Showcase: Fall Font Festival

01. September: Fall Fonts Festival

It's kind of hard to imagine we've had the festival for 11 years now! Many things change, but then many things stay the same. Be sure to read our reader's comments (Prize Winners above) about type and typography.   What have you got to say about fonts & type?   Let us know!

27. Changes for Fall of 2005

Here's a big thank you to our most recent friends who signed up to support the Design Center with your generous contributions.  However, today I feel a little bad asking for donations, so I won't.  Send your money to the Red Cross and the Salvation Army to do your share in helping ease the pain and misery in the wake of Katrina.   

I wrote a sizeable check yesterday and will probably write more. I also plan to go through my closet and drawers and gather up all those clothes that no longer fit my buldging waist and deliver them to the Salvation Army.  

Yes, these are tough times, folks. But if everyone chips in -- everyone will pull through.

Here's a reminder that our monthly theme continues through September  and we're still looking for your stories and reflections on type and typography.

All through the month we'll be adding to the Loading Dock in the Publishers' Warehouse, and will be setting up more great stuff   for October... stay tuned!

Thanks for reading...
