July 1991 TrueTypeª format notice.
Notes on LORVADª (formerly Printers Devil) fonts:
These fonts have been converted from PostScript type1
format to TrueTypeª format. You will need the TrueType
software inits and System 6.07 or System 7 in order to
use them. Medusa is based on the familiar Art Nouveau
font Broklin. It's a display font that looks great at
12 points or larger. About 170 characters and 100 kerning
pairs are defined.
LoopDeLoop is a fun display font. Its uppercase characters
are based on the font Bee Line. They have a stroked effect
simulating a continuous line, looped to create each character.
The lowercase characters are a solid variation on the shape of
the uppercase. This set contains only about sixty characters.
There is minimal kerning. Looks nice as an opening decorative
capital. Shareware $10. Albatross is a text body font with
a moderately short x-height. The relative point size is a bit
small (i.e. 14 point is closer to what most people would consider
12 point). It contains all the regular characters and many special
characters. Shareware $10.
Judas is a display font patterned on Adobe wood type Ironwood (which
is patterned on an old wood type). It contains only caps, numbers,
and a few special characters. It seems to look best at 16 points or
larger. Very interesting negative space It is shareware-$10
(or thirty silver dollars if you want us to feel guilty).
Current LORVAD fonts include: Bodidly Bold, Oswald Black, Oswald Grey,
BlackForest, InkaBod, CartWright, Judas, Albatross, LoopDeLoop, and Medusa.
These fonts are NOT demos. Unless noted they contain all the regular
alphanumeric characters. Most contain an assortment of special characters.
Fonts contain ÒhintingÓ; usually over one hundred kerning pairs are defined.
AFM files are included. Bodidly Bold and Oswald Black look great in small
or large sizes. BlackForest and Inkabod are designed without any curves.
With one or two exceptions all angles are multiples of 45 degrees.
BlackForest has an old world German feel. It seems to look best about 24
points. InkaBod is based on the bitmapped font Nordic. On the LaserWriter
it looks great at 14 points and above. On the ImageWriter, try it at 18
points and larger. CartWright is inspired by the Adobe wood type
Ponderosa font. It contains only the basic 90+ characters. There are one
or two bitmap screenfonts imbedded in the suitcase along with the outline
font. These screenfonts are just your basic Fontographer-generated
characters with minimal touchup. TrueTypeª technology will generate
screenfonts as you need them. LORVADª fonts are distributed in the
spirit of shareware. Try them out for a month. If you decide to keep
any of these fonts you are required to send a $10 per font registration

Please indicate what font(s) you are registering and where you found them.
Maryland residents should include 5% sales tax.Because of the relatively
low price we ask that you send in the shareware fee even if you have
registered the same typeface in type 1 format. These products may be
distributed freely as long as the following conditions are met: The files
may not be modified and this notice must be included with each font or group
of LORVADª fonts; Fonts may be included on collections of Public Domain and
Shareware disks providing that no more than $10 is charged for the disk.
Distribution by electronic BBS is allowed. If you paid for a disk with
any of these fonts you are still required to send in your registration fee
if you decide to keep them.The Bottom Line: We will continue to release
laser fonts in a non-crippled format as long as there is a fair response to
the registration fee.
